California Blanket Angels deliver 42 more!
Our active group of blanket angels in the Los Angeles area, led by Diana Howe, have made and delivered 42 more handmade blankets to Youth Emerging Stronger, a Los Angeles organization working to build bright futures for foster and homeless youth.
This delivery brings their total donations this year to 69, and Diana is planning another blanket making party in July! We are blessed by this wonderful group of blanket angels in California.

Largest volunteer event ever? JP Morgan Chase employees make blankets at the zoo
My Very Own Blanket was one of four charities included in JP Morgan Chase's Family Appreciation Night at the Columbus Zoo on Saturday, May 11. Hundreds of volunteers from the group of about 20,000 employees and their families stopped by the MVOB booth to make a blanket and add their name to the special tag that is sewn on each one.
MVOB is still compiling the final number of blankets made, but we know that over 600 blankets were added toward our 2019 goal of 20,000 blankets.
The event, and MVOB's part in it, were featured on a Fox 28 news broadcast on Saturday night. Click the link below to read the complete article from abc6onyourside.com and to see more photos and a video of the news broadcast.
