The family to one on our friends is putting on a service project that I hope we all can be involved with. It is called Calling All Angels. To describe it and what to expect please watch the video, and read their story below.
My husband and I wanted to do a service project in honor of our son Jayden’s birthday. He was born at 23 weeks old on May 30, 2009 and was just too small to pull through.
This is the second year we’ve decided to do this service project. Last year we posted the service idea on our blog and entitled it “Calling All Angels” asking anyone that wanted to could help by donating baby blankets. We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we received by so many, friends, family, and even strangers.
We decided to donate the blankets to a hospital as we know how meaningful the blankets that Jayden was wrapped in are to us. It is something physical I was able to take home and that I can pull out and hold when I’m missing him.
We feel the blankets are symbolic because as we were waiting for Jayden to be born, the hospital staff, family and friends surrounded us with their support, love and warmth, just as blankets bring love and warmth to the babies they are wrapped around.
