Rick Bing with helpers on their first delivery of blankets to Living Hope Centre in Fish Hoek

Again this year, I have sourced a warm relief blanket for just over R50 and am on a drive to collect LOTS of small donations (in R50 denominations) from LOTS & LOTS of friends through the social media and email.

A friend of mine, Cheddar Baker, works with the needy on a daily basis and distributes the blankets directly to them as well as  baby blankets to orphanages in the Peninsula.  We also source dog blankets which are donated to the likes of TEARS and the SPCA.

Cheddar, Barry Herbert and I raise funds to pay for these blankets and every cent collected is used to buy blankets – there are no third parties involved.  Last year, we distributed over 700 blankets and had money left over for baby blankets which we donated at Christmas.

I have a blanket sample at AP Jones, where you can also leave cash donations.  If you wish to do an EFT, the details are below.
