Keeping child victims of domestic violence safe, warm … LOVED

12 Mar

Since I launched Safe Warm Loved in July 2010, I’ve sewn some 125 blankets for child victims of domestic violence in the Long Beach, California, area. This is entirely thanks to donations from friends, family and supportive fabric stores like Fabric.com that have donated funds to the project. [FYI: You rock!]

In December, a group of students at Laurel Continuation High School in Los Alamitos, California, joined me in the cause, volunteering to make blankets for the shelter children as part of their sewing curriculum. That means Safe Warm Loved has lots of extra hands to make blankets for the shelter children. All we need now is the funding to continue purchasing fabric for the project.

Please consider making a donation to Safe Warm Loved – either via fabric, funding, or time. Check out our interview on 98.7 FM to learn more about it. In it, the director of WomenShelter Long Beach, TuLynn Smylie, discusses why the blankets are so important for the children’s well-being once they arrive in a shelter situation. (Please note, this is a radio interview; only audio will run on the link below.)

To donate now, simply visit Paypal.com and send a donation of any size to email address safewarmloved@steelcitypress.com. Or, email me at the same address for information on sending a check, etc.

With *so* much thanks,
xoxo
