Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our 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.
This is a fairly new chapter, having just been verified on Novemeber 3. We are looking to help out both the children and the eldery (who as they saying goes, are children the second time) in need of love, care, and understanding that homemade blankets show and offer to them.
