Mission Statement

All volunteer, national, non-profit organization making and distributing homemade blankets to children born HIV+, drug-addicted, infected with AIDS or other chronic & terminal illnesses, those who are abused, in foster care or experiencing trauma of any kind.

Our recipients are from 0-18.
--------------------------
Economic demographics, race, social status play no role in the decision of who gets binkies. We simply check our local area shelters, hospitals, emergency foster care and other agencies to see who has the need we can help fill.

We encourage our chapters to build local community by seeking the "invisible kids" near them. Those who have been forgotten, not been seen, not heard are the ones we seek to comfort. Children and teens may experience trauma when a parent or sibling is ill or has passed away. These children need binkies too - not just the ones in the hospital. They need a gift - a reminder - that they, too are loved and thought of by someone who cares.

Description

Make blankets!!!We call these 'Binkies'. Binkies can be sewn, knitted, crocheted, or quilted. The only requirement is that they are at least 3' square, soft, washable -- all pins removed! and that they come from the heart.

We have no set patterns because we have volunteers working with all skill levels and styles. We wouldn't want to hinder your creativity. We have a few patterns downloadable on the site.

If you have Binkies that you want to donate, please call Terrie Madruga at 916-719-8146. You can also drop them off in Lincoln, CA
