The bloggers challenge!

Ok dear friends. I've been lacking on posting pics on the blankie blog, so here are some more cute kido's.
But when I was on there I noticed that we only have 20 followers on the blankie blog. We need to spread the word on the blankies. So my challenge is for you to go over and become a follower of the blankie blog! Spread the word, add the blankie button to your blog. Click on the highlighted blankie or click on the blankie logo with Jaxsons cute face on the left side of this page.
We have sent out over 150 blankies so far! We've been to Africa, Australia, England, Canada, and soon New Zealand! You don't know how much joy these blankies bring to sick kids, and even their parents. I just got an email from a friend that requested a blankie for her nephew. He got the blankie right before he went in for his 3rd open heart surgery. His mom held on to the blankie while he was in surgery. A comfort for her!

I don't like to beg for donations, but there is a donation button on the blankie blog if you would like to help. It definitely helps, all the money for the blankies comes out of mine and my helpers pockets. Also, some people like to go out and pick the fabric themselves, so they can see the finished product on the blog! If you'd like to do that we get 1 1/4 yard. Flannel material, two pieces, a front and back. And we can use any cute material, boy or girl, we get requests for everything. We try to make the blankie specifically for each child based on colors and things they like.

Here's the blankie video again if you haven't seen it. I would like to do an updated one with new blankie recievers soon!

Thanks friends, lets get more followers on that blog!
