Buy a Blanket & Ship a Box!

As a non-profit we rely solely on the generosity of animal lovers to help us ship our free blankets to animal shelters across the US. We send approximately 800 blankets (often more) each and every month, and even the shipping is free for the shelters!

CFC's founder, Linda, makes a handful of "Remnants Reborn" blankets each month which are offered for sale, solely to support CFC and raise funds to ship all the other blankets to shelters. Please consider purchasing a blanket via the secure & popular Etsy or Amazon websites for yourself or a friend.

Will your purchase make a difference?

Around the time I was frantically crocheting my first blankets, I ran across this story. It's told many different ways (sometimes starfish, other times jellyfish) and with varying characters, but I think it captures the heart of every CFC volunteer. 

 

The Star Thrower

One day a man was walking along a beach. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. Off in the distance he could see a young boy going back and forth between the surf's edge and the beach. Back and forth the boy went.

As the man approached, he could see that there were hundreds of starfish stranded on the sand as the result of the natural action of the tide. The man was struck by the apparent futility of the task. There were far too many starfish. Many of them were sure to die. As he approached, the boy continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them back into the sea. As he came up to the boy he said, "You must be crazy! There are thousands of miles of beach covered with starfish. You can't possibly make a difference."  The boy looked at the man. He then bent down and picked up one more starfish, and threw it back into the sea. He turned back to the man and said, "But it made a difference to that one."

Our blankets make great gifts!

This card is included with every blanket purchase. The recipient will know that as their own kitty is comfortable, 15-20 animal shelter pets will by comfortable too!

Remnants Reborn!

We call the blankets we sell on Amazon & Etsy "Remnants Reborn" because each blanket represents all that we hold dear:

  • Each is hand-crocheted using the simplest of yarn. We believe comfort isn’t complicated.
  • Each uses the yarn we have leftover, after making our shelter blankets. We believe in never wasting what we’re given.
  • Each blends a wild array of colors and textures, much like the pets found in shelters. We believe mutts are the best “breed”.
  • Each is handcrafted with love, not perfection. We believe that machines strive for uniformity, we embrace creativity and variety!
  • Each blanket is a one-of-a-kind creation, so no two are alike! We believe this about the pets we comfort too!
