Not that I need any reminders but days like today still motivate me more then I already am when it comes to what Blankets of Hope-Berks is truly about. I get on Facebook today and Jeff Laylon shared a post about Threads of Change. Curious, I click on the link to see what this organization does. They help local foster children. Hmm...Light bulb moment(I get a few a year). I message them asking to have them call me. Tonight while at pool, Angelic Horne calls & since I was not shooting yet, I answered. We both do our introductions. This was an easy decision to make & one I really dislike seeing. Children in the foster care system being treated like garbage. Rob Chasteen Scheer can certainly share how this system fails these children.
I am certain that most of us take lots of things for granted. In my eyes, no child should ever be without a blanket!
At the end of our conversation, I mentioned that BOH will send 48 baby blue & 48 baby pink 30" x 40" baby blankets. We will also send them 48 purple & 48 royal 50" x 60" standard throw blankets. I am placing the order after this post and these blankets will arrive via UPS next Tues or Wed.

Yesterday Blankets of Hope-Berks received a check from Salem UCC of Moorestown(Bath, PA) Sunday School. A total surprise! Their Sunday school children had a Lenten project and they chose BOH. Since they are located in Northhampton County, I decided to do some research to see if I could find an organization in their area that might be able to use the blankets. I found the homeless shelter, Safe Harbor Easton. Amazing how things work because when I called them, they mentioned that they posted a wish list at the end of March asking for fleece blankets.
BOH ordered 96 blankets today which will arrive on Tues. BOH has now donated over 25,000 blankets since Jan 2012.

After talking with both Cancer Centers today, this is a special gift that the patients have been blessed to receive. It was great to hear back that it puts a smile on their faces to receive these blankets. For me, it is personal to keep honoring my parents knowing these blankets make a positive impact on those going through a rough time.
