Formally, My mission is to provide warm clothing, dry diapers and cool books to local children in need.

Hi Megan,

I read your blog today and was thrilled to see your list of meaningful gifts and ways to give this holiday season. I thought you had some really good ideas there and was particularly impressed with Project Warm Hug and your goal of providing warm clothing to local children in need.

I work for UniversalGiving™, a non-profit using a web-based marketplace to connect people to the best opportunities to give or volunteer in the US and internationally. One of the things we do is offer gift packages that very much sound like your concept around blankets.

I hope you'll consider UniversalGiving as a means to get the word out to people looking to volunteer or give. If you have any thoughts or questions about UniversalGiving, please feel free to ask me!

I wish you success in achieving your goal of 300 blankets this holiday season!
