50th Anniversary Celebration Video

A BIG thank you to Ellen Jacobs for initiating the Preemie Baby Blanket project.  A total of 36 baby blankets were donated!  Bravo to everyone who participated!  A special Thank You to our friends who wanted to be part of this project. Our friends made a total of 10 blankets out of 36!

The blankets were tagged with the crafter’s name on the back of the card.  They were individually packaged in plastic bags with our Contactivity information.  Then, they were gifted in a big cloth toy box with a big red bow.

Ellen delivered the baby blankets to the Jewish General Hospital on December 24th and  they were all given out as gifts later that day.  36 newborn babies got one of their first Christmas gifts from us!  I am glad that we made their holiday special ❤

Thank you all for your generous time and contribution to this wonderful project!  Thank you Ellen for your great idea!  There are 36 babies who have nice warm blankets during these cold winter days!
