My heart was thinking of you,

My hands knew what to do.

This blanket grew out of the love

I want to share with you.

I hope it will keep you warm,

And befriend you late at night.

I hope you'll come to love it,

And be comforted by its sight.

Let this blanket wrap you in friendship,

And cover you in love.

Because this blanket was thinking of you

Long before it was even done.

Thank you for your generousity!  8500+ blankets have been delivered to children in need in Story, Polk and Boone Counties since our chapter began in February of 2009
