That's how many FREE handmade blankets we have given to animal shelter pets, as of 11/22/15!
7,000 this year alone!
4 Ways You Can Help Today...
Here's what you can do today to help animal shelter pets...
#1 Sponsor a blanket shipment
We provide 600-800 blankets per month to animal shelters across the US. As we work with shelters farther away, it becomes more expensive to get the blankets to them. Sponsoring a blanket shipment is an easy way to help!
Any amount helps ... so please consider making a donation, with 100% going exclusively to ship blankets! Thank you!
#2 Buy a blanket - Ship a box!
This is a brand new way for non-crafters to help! Linda, CFC's founder, has been busy this fall creating limited-edition blankets which will be sold on Etsy, soley to raise shipping funds.
Each blanket will include this card, indicating that 25 blankets will be shipped to a shelter in need.
A beautiful blanket PLUS sponsoring a shipment, equals a meaningful gift for any pet lover!
#3 Make a blanket
If you know how to knit, crochet, sew, or just use scissors - why not start on a critter blanket today?
#4 Donate yarn or fleece
If you don't have the time or expertise, but do have some extra yarn (leftover from a project) or a full skein you've never gotten around to using, we can put it to good use! Any amount, any color 4-ply yarn will be gratefully accepted.
We also gladly accept any leftover fleece material. We use larger pieces of fleece to make blankets, and smaller strips to make pull-toys for shelter dogs. We have a 24/7 drop-off bin in Glen Ellyn, IL to receive donations. Please see our volunteer resources page for more details.
