We are a family of blanket lovers.
Not because we are cold, but because there is something comforting about having a soft, familiar and, yes, warm blanket wrapped around you. Snuggles in the chair are better with a blanket and beds are so much cozier with blankets piled high. However, to compensate for all the added blankets in your bed, you must then sleep with a fan on - no matter the season, no matter the temperature. Trust me on this one.
When a sister in law reminded me about the wonderful charity that is Project Linus and expressed interest in making tie blankets to donate, I happily jumped on the Black Friday sales at JoAnn fabrics.
I only purchased enough material for us to make 8 blankets. But that's 8 more children (or teens) who are "seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need" that will know the security, comfort and warmth that a blanket can bring. Its a simple act on our behalf but to the recipients, the effects are ever lasting.
