About Me

My Photo
My name is Allie and I am 17 years old and I have a sister with NF1. Operation A Sisters Love, is a project I started as a result of my sister spending much time in the hospital. She was given a blanket while there and it gave her so much comfort I decided other kids needed a blanket when they stay in the hospital. So I told a few people about my idea. They must have liked it because I was getting donations from a lot of people which enabled me to make more than 50 blankets before my first donation to the American Family Children's Hospital in Madison Wisconsin. I would like to become big enough to service more hospitals with blankets and other comfort items to the children.

December 7, 2013

Today a good friend of mine helped me make blankets with a local group of helpful young ladies. We followed this up with a quick donation of 7 blankets. This brings our total up to 773!

A few weeks ago we had another blanket party where we made 50 more blankets. Most of them have already been taken down to Madison and the rest are waiting here for me to deliver to local hospitals. Below is a picture of some of those who showed up to help and a picture of some of the blankets we made that day. :)

Blanket Party, Jan 2011

After all that hard work, the money from the dosomething grant is officially used! This previous weekend I had a blanket party. With a goal of 100 blankets we worked for several hours and ended up making 101 blankets! Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded it! I would like to thank everybody who helped make the blankets, donated money, Sacred Heart Parish for letting us use their gym, and dosomething.org for the grant. Thank you all.(:

We were recently contacted by a mother who lives near Madison. Her and her daughters wanted to help so they made some blankets and donated them to the American Family Children's Hospital in our name. Thank you so much for helping us.

Update on the Northern Branch

Background: As you might have already read in previous blog, my young cousin up in Rhinelander, Wisconsin wanted to help me give back by donating blankets to these children. Because of this, we started the "Northern Chain" of OSL (Operation: A Sister's Love).

Gracie and her friend, Delanie, recently donated 71 blankets.


A huge thanks to Gracie, Delanie, and anyone else who helped make all of these blankets for sick children. It means a lot to me, and I know the recipient of each and every blanket feels the same.

Do Something Grant

This past summer I applied for a grant through dosomething.org. A few weeks ago, I received an email informing me that I had won the grant. As you can imagine, I was extremely excited and couldn't even begin to imagine the possibilities that winning this grant would bring me. Not only did I receive enough money for a blanket party, but it got my organization out there, and many more opportunities await my organization. I am very thankful and would like to thank everyone at Do Something. It really means a lot that you guys picked me to be one of the lucky few to receive money through your Get Well Soon Grant.
