Last year the girls and I made our first quilt for the Touch of Comfort program.
We are in the process of making a few more quilts this summer too.
This is a program that has really touched our hearts – — it brings warm and cozy blankets to kids in hospitals.
Since 2009, the Touch of Comfort Program has provided over 30,000 quilts to sick kids.
It’s easy to get involved. You can order a free quilt kit from Quilts for Kids. It includes all the fabric you need, along with instructions and a label to help you share your story with the child who receives your quilt. I love how the Downy Touch of Comfort quilt tag connects quilters, volunteers, hospital workers and families. This was the first quilt we had ever made and it was such a great experience for my daughters and I.
And now, Downy is making it even easier to help:
just visit Downy’s Facebook Page and share what brings you comfort — and they’ll donate $2 to Quilts for Kids.
Let’s help them meet their goal of donating $20,000 to Quilts for Kids.
I love the idea of giving comfort to sick kids. My son was hospitalized when he was only 3 years old. It was a scary time for all of us. But it was especially scary for him, as a little three-year-old away from home, not fully understanding what was happening. Any warm touches to help his hospital room feel like home would have been wonderful.
