About Me

My Photo
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.

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.(:
