A friend of my asked me to help spread the word about a fantastic cause, and I am more than happy to do it! It is called Operation Warm Christmas.
What is Operation: Warm Christmas? Operation Warm Christmas 2010 is a charitable effort to enrich the lives of premature babies, still born babies, and parents during their stays in a Newborn Intensive Care Unit. The pledge of Courtney Bock designs is simple. They will donate 100 receiving blankets specifically designed, sized, and weighed appropriately for premature infants. After that 100 blankets, they will continue to donate one preemie receiving blanket for every one Classic Receiving Blanket sold from their children's textile collection.
