Make a Blanket

We rely on volunteers to get these blankets made, packed up, and delivered to adoptive families. In honour of Family Day, get together with friends, families and colleagues to hand make these warming gifts of welcome for children joining their adoptive families.


We are happy to announce that over 300 blankets will be made in honour of Family Day. There are no more blanket kits left, but it’s not too late for you to get involved. You can still:

Thank you!


You’ll be able to personalize these blankets with tags!

How does it work?

Each blanket takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes to knot.
