Blankets in the Park
EVENT DATE: Jul 15, 2017
On July 15th at Dodge Park in Commerce, MI. From 1-4pm we will be gathering to create hope and comfort for warriors that are suffering in the hospital this summer by creating them colorful fleece blankets and sending them encouraging video messages. Food, snacks, and beverages will be available to enjoy a picnic outside while we are creating armor.
Every $24 fundraised purchases 1 F&TY blanket kit for you to make on the day of the event. You are able to have this kit delivered prior to the event date or pick up at the event.
Fleece & Thank You mission statement:
Our mission is to provide donors the unique opportunity to give comfort and hope to children by creating a fleece blanket and a personalized video message. The healing connection we foster by linking blanket makers to children with illnesses allows us to cheer them on at the starting line of their treatment journey. Children thrive on love and acceptance. The videos that come from every blanket maker are comforting and inspiring to the child as they realize they are not in this alone; there are people on the outside of the hospital walls who care about their fight.
We work with members of the community to make blankets and video messages, and then we deliver that comfort to the hospital. Our goal is a simple one: every child in every hospital bed receiving much-needed hope in the form of a colorful, fleece blanket at the start of treatment. We believe every warrior deserves armor for their battle, and we will continue this work until we guarantee that for every child entering the hospital for inpatient treatments.
Thank you for you support!
