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.(:
- 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.
