With every purchase of a blanket, one blanket is GIVEN To a local homeless shelter. How cool is that? The vision came as Bob Daltons own mother lived on the streets one summer. This can happen to anyone as life sometimes just happens. When Bob Dalton tried to figure out what to do to help the shelters one word kept coming up.. blankets!
If you cannot purchase one of these blankets you can donate unused items from your own home. Weve been doing this with little crazy life since she was born. Big toys usually get sold to purchase more age appropriate toys, however, Most of the smaller toys, clothes, socks, and shoes get boxed up and dropped off at the family shelter near our home. That said I know we can do more. This blanket is going to be a great reminder of that! I am going through our house tonight and cutting our throw blankets inventory in half. With that I am also going to find extra toiletries to include with our next dropoff. Another idea I have seen that I haven’t done is personal care bags. This is a ziplock bag with a toothbrush, toothpaste, a couple snacks and a bottle of water. I have seen people put phone cards in them with a little note that they are loved and cherished.
