I’m Olivia, age 13, founder of #WarmBlanketHugs. In 2009, I was hospitalized during my diagnosis with epilepsy. I received a homemade blanket that was warm, fuzzy and I snuggled with it constantly. I continued to carry the blanket with me everywhere I went after leaving the hospital. There is nothing better than curling up with a warm blanket. They provide comfort and security, things people don’t always have the opportunity to enjoy during certain situations.
I want others to feel the comfort of a blanket as well, so I created Warm Blanket Hugs as a way for people to share homemade and store bought blankets with all ages in need all over the world.
How can you help? I’d love for you to join our journey and donate blankets to those in need.
I have packets available for you if you’d like me to send you one, you can message me on social media or email me Olivia@WarmBlanketHugs.com. The packet includes instructions on how to make a blanket and ideas of locations to donate to.
While you are out shopping and/or making the blanket(s), I’d love to see pictures! Please tag us on Facebook and Instagram – Warm Blanket Hugs and use the tag #WarmBlanketHugs.
Thank you for helping me spread the word and sharing Warm Blanket Hugs!
