Celebrate “Make a Fleece & Thank You Blanket Day” on Saturday, Aug. 5, at High Velocity Sports in Canton. Fleece & Thank You is a Michigan-based charity that believes in giving sick kids in the hospital a friend for their journey.
For children dealing with the isolation of inpatient hospital treatments, Fleece & Thank You provides inspiring video messages of support carried by colorful, warm fleece blankets. The blanket acts as armor for their battle, and the video message from the blanket maker is an inspiring friend cheering on the warrior in their fight.
The organization aims to provide 25,000 children a year with their own blanket; at “Make a Fleece & Thank You Blanket Day,” staff and volunteers are hoping to make 5,000. Please help them reach their goal by purchasing a blanket to make that day. Blankets can be made at the event location, from home, work, or anywhere you happen to find yourself that afternoon!
Blankets can be purchased online at crowdrise.com/FTYBlanketDay or by logging onto fleeceandthankyou.org. You can also email info@ fleeceandthankyou.org to get more details on how to get involved.
