Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

Blankets of Luv

Since September 1999,our little group called "Blanketsofluv" has consisted of 2 to 20 members at any given time. Since its inception we have donated over 1099 items (blankets, afghans, guilts, gowns, hats, toys)to people that just need a little extra love and support while they were going through a difficult time. So many people have written thank you notes and sent photos of their loved ones with the items.

While the majority of the items have been given to the Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital and Neo-Natal Care Unit, many have also been given to individuals in the community. There is always a need, if we just open our eyes to those around us. I would encourage others to look around them and help someone who just needs a little love.
