Afghans for Angels Info and Addresses

Hi folks....

Since March is our Afghans for Angels time, just some more information about the charity. It is a group that provides hand-made afghans for families who have lost a child to stillbirth, miscarriage, or infant death.

They have not updated their website in some time, but here is the link: http://www.angelfire.com/ia2/AforApage2/

This charity is near and dear to my heart, as I have had three miscarriages myself in the last year and a half, and had nothing to hold onto after I lost my children. When I lost my first baby, I joined a support group for women who were due in June of that year, and I made blankets in honor of each and every one of their babies. It was such a healing experience for me, I kept doing it and asked this group to join in. The response was overwhelming, and helped me move through my grief.

The blankets are small... they can be as small as 12 inches by 12 inches, or as large as 2 ft x 2 ft. Please realize that these are blankets for families who are grieving -- so they should be in soft baby colors.

I will be collecting blankets to send out, so you can send them directly to me or to one of the chapters. Since the website is outdated, some of the chapter links are gone.

Here are two addresses of people who I know are actively collecting:

Afghans for Angels
171 Gramlingtown Rd.
South Fork, PA 15956

HeartFelt Angels
Elizabeth Parsons, Founder
P.O. Box 2634
Winchester, VA 22604

I will be sending my box of blankets to the lady in VA since I sent our first large box of 40(ish) to the group in PA.
