To see happy faces and the impact this blanket drive has on the community is amazing, I wonder if the children find more comfort in seeing other people in the world actually do care for them and that they are important, than they do for the blankets and the warmth thereof.
Yearly we embark on a two month campaign to raise public awareness for all the children nationwide who don’t have proper houses and suffer from the cold as we head into the winter months. With the main aim collect as many blankets as possible and redistribute them before winter sets in.
We place boxes outside the local shopping centres, churches and welcome any fresh ideas and lots of help.
Last year (2011) we were able to collect over 1200 blankets and this year we are looking for 2000 blankets, we encourage the public to get involved and make a difference this winter.
