A youth group from the Grace Baptist Church in Marshall, Michigan recently partnered with Blankets & Bears. The youth wanted to reach out to others-especially orphans and together made blankets and collected more blankets and stuffed animals to send to orphans. It is awesome how one youth group or church can partner and join together to help spread this love and reach out to the fatherless. One eight year old from the church even wrote a beautiful letter to send with her blanket telling the other child though he or she may be fatherless she or he has a father in heaven who loves them! She even went on to teach them the song "Jesus Loves Me." Thanks to a loving youth group and leaders Karen and Matthew Domsic orphans will be sent the tangible love of Christ. Thank you Grace Baptist for loving!
Our mission is to send the "tangible" love of Jesus Christ to his orphaned children throughout the world in the form of a blanket or bear.
Our vision is to send that warm and cuddly feeling of love through blankets and bears to orphanages in Africa, then Asia and eventually to all third world countries.

This week two shipments are currently in route-25 warm blankets have been sent to an orphanage in Sierre Leone and 150 bears have been sent to Uganda! We have plenty in stock thanks to people dropping off by my house, classroom and even some sweet ladies who make quilts and hand crochet just to send out to these kids! Can't wait to share pictures when they arrive!
Every Christmas a Baptist Church in Louisana buys brand new blankets and teddy bears and ships huge packages to my door steps for me to send on to orphans....and every Christmas I am amazed with their love and support. They have supported Blankets and Bears since a mission trip to Laredo back in the summer of 2008 but every year I am taken back by their love. Thank you Richard Kauffman and Martin Baptist Church-your love reaches Panhandle, Texas and children in third world countries!
