We are having a Bink-A-Thon. We make as many blankets as we can that day. The blankets are given to children and teens in need of comfort and a reminder that they matter and are not invisible or forgotten.

You can bring sewing machines, cords, thread, etc. You can help us make the no-sew blankets too.
Some people pin, cut, iron - there is something for everyone to do. All ages are welcome. Children under 12 must have one adult per 5 kids. Community Service hours can be validated, too. Bring your forms.

Sometimes people are inspired to host their own event. If you can't make this one, it's a fun option.

We typically have about 20 sewing machines, and then stations to cut batting, and pin backings set up on the floor and tables.

You can bring your fabric stash to donate.
You can bring fleece to donate.
You can bring your sheets so we can use them for backings.

Our blankets will be delivered to local area shelters and organizations serving the homeless teens, and those going through trauma, or that are in foster care or transitional housing.

Mission Statement

Binky Patrol is devoted to reaching out to needy children, including HIV-positive, drug-addicted, neglected, abused, or children experiencing trauma in any way. Binky Patrol volunteers bring a caring, loving touch by creating and delivering handmade blankets, "binkies", to enrich the children's lives and to meet their most basic needs of warmth, security and comfort.

Binky Patrol's unique way of touching a child's life includes many mediums. To reach them, "binkies" are distributed through hospitals, shelters, and social service agencies. "Binkies" are to be given as gifts and are not recycled in the agencies.

Description

Binky Patrol's volunteers as well as chapter leaders make blankets which can be crocheted, sewn, knitted, tied, and even quilted for ill and traumatized children.
