- My name is Allie, I am a college student from Appleton, Wisconsin. Operation A Sisters Love, is a project I started as a result of my younger sister, Emma spending time in the hospital. Emma has multiple brain tumors from a genetic condition she has, Neurofibromatosis Type 1. While she was undergoing treatment, she was given a blanket and it gave her so much comfort that I decided other kids needed a blanket when they stay in the hospital. I started OSL when I was only 11 years old, today I am almost 20 and have made more than 1,000 blankets. With the support of my friends, family, and even strangers, I have been able to continue to make blankets as often as possible.

I would like to thank the Pay it Forward Project located in Hortonville, Wisconsin for raising money for Operation: A Sister's Love. The goal of the Pay it Forward Project is to make the days of random strangers and they most certainly have helped to make the days of the children who will receive blankets. Hopefully the recipients will pay it forward by making another person's day when the opportunity presents itself - even if it's simply smiling at someone they meet on the street.
