We are thankful for YOU!
We are thankful for YOU—our blanket angels, volunteers and donors. Your dedication, your skills and your commitment allow us to provide love and comfort to children living in foster care by putting a blanket of “their very own” into their hands. We are blessed by your support, at Thanksgiving and all year.
Our 2022 goal: Blankets for 30,000 Children in Foster Care

Together we can do it, one blanket at a time!

My Very Own Blanket brings love, comfort and hope to children in foster care. Here's how you can help!

  • Drop off your finished blankets in the 24-hour curbside bin outside our workshop.

Join others around the world on #GivingTuesday, a global movement unleashing the power of radical generosity: donations, yes, but also volunteering your time and talents or making someone smile!

Scout leads blanket project
Lillian is shown here with Jessica and two of the 110 fleece blankets made during the service project she led for her Scout troop 216 as part of the requirements for earning her Eagle Scout Award.

Congratulations, Lillian, new Eagle Scout! And thanks for choosing MVOB as your partner. We are blessed by your support.
Celebrating foster parents
Being a foster parent is hard; being a child in foster care is harder. Providing love for even a short time is an amazing thing.

• In 2020, 213,964 children under 18 entered foster care in the U.S.
• 30% of those children were ages 1 - 5
Statistics from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Sept. 2022
We are very pleased to announce that My Very Own Blanket is now a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity. 

Accreditation certifies that a charity has met the BBB’s 20 Charity Standards for trust, integrity and excellence.
