A few weeks ago I was contacted by Karis who is a student at Purdue University and also the Windsor Residence Hall Social Director. She is in charge of all social events for her all girls residence hall. She stated that she wanted to help out our fleece blanket drive for chemotherapy patients. In honor of October being breast cancer awareness month she wanted the girls at her dorm to make blankets that would specifically go to breast cancer patients who are receiving chemotherapy. Karis stated that they also wanted to make homemade cards to go along with the blankets “It’s really important to me that these women who receive these blankets know that they have support and prayers from all the girls in our dorm.”
I fell in love with her idea and told her that I would make sure whatever blankets her dorm made, that they would go specifically to the breast cancer patients. To say that I was blown away by what I received in the mail a few days ago would be a huge understatement.
Karis and the girls at Windsor Residence Hall at Purdue University made beautiful blankets. The girls also made the cards to go along with each of the blankets they made as well. They are beautiful handmade cards, with special greetings giving their support to each breast cancer patient inside.
I am so grateful to Karis and the girls of Windsor Residence Hall at Purdue University for taking time out of their very busy college schedule to make these blankets for the us here at Layers of Love to pass along to the breast cancer patients who are currently going through chemotherapy at the Lehigh Valley Health Network. These girls have a big heart. They have done beautiful work and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for their donations.
*Our donation drive continues, we are currently working with several groups who are preparing blankets for Layers of Love to donate to those who are currently going through chemotherapy treatment. If you or your group would like to get involved and are not sure where to start, please let us know by leaving a comment here or you can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org *
