Take the sting out of winter’s chill by joining The Great Winter Warm-up.
By the end of 2023, our goal is to donate a grand total of 45,000 blankets to our global neighbors who are dealing with conflict and disaster. Your participation in our Great Winter Warm-Up this February will go a long way in helping us meet that goal.
During the month of February 2021, 4,384 comforters were created by people like you and donated to families in countries including Syria, Ukraine and Jordan. Your time and creative talents are helping to share a tangible message of God’s love with those in need.
