There are very few community service opportunities for children, developmentally disabled and senior citizens. My organization brings community service to these individuals - providing a much needed service to these underserved communities. My blanket design is simple so that if you can tie your shoes you can make a blankets and you can make a difference.
I have already showed over 3000 children the value of community service through their assistance in making my blankets. I want to continue to reach the underserved populations to show them that the can help the world one blanket at a time. My design is simple and an army of people can make the day better for a child in an emergency situation or an animal in a shelter.
Community service in America has been declining. I believe that by engaging children they can see the joy that come from community service and see how easy it is. I believe that by engaging senior citizens and developmentally disabled individuals I can tap into a wealth of energy and willingness to make a difference. My organization has made almost 10,000 blankets and I want to make another 500.
