Testimonials - The following were posted to the Blankets for a Brighter Day Facebook Page
--- My 3yr old daughter had a 3 1/2 hour surgery last week at Childrens Mpls. When a nurse came in holding a pink and purple blanket with green frogs on it. My daughter has Down Syndrome and used very minimal words, but when she seen that blanket her eyes lit up and she said "Pretty!". Thank you so much for making a rather painful day, a little brighter!
--- Thank you so much for the cute blanket that my daughter recieved this week at Children's hospital in Minneapolis. It did make my daugher smile and have a brighter day!!! God bless you for giving such a amazing gift to the children !!!
--- Thank you for the blanket we received for our little guy this week =) it was a cute dinosaur one! Very comforting!
--- I wanted to thank Blankets for a Brighter Day because a blanket from your group brought a very big smile to my 3 year olds face when the a person from the child life department brought it to him. He does not have an attachment to one blanket, but he loves tie blankets so when we were admitted late Monday night the first thing Tuesday morning I asked the nurse if they had a blanket and within hours he got his tie blanket and when he saw it he lit up and he was attached to it instantly. It is blue with airplanes and helicopters which he loves and they didn't even ask what he liked so it was meant to be his tie blanket. Thank you to you for all you do in helping children feel a little less scared in a very scary situation.
--- This has been a hard week for our family. My 4 year old son was diagnosed with leukemia. We went to our normal clinic and was told to go home and pack a bag. In my rush we forgot a soft cuddly blanket. We didn't realize it until bedtime. The nurse offered a baby blanket and I was trying to even make a towel sound good, when a CSA walked in with a huge smile and to us he looked like a super hero holding a beautiful soft dinosaur blanket. It has been with my son since we were admitted and has brought us all comfort and made it feel more like home. It was so wonderful and we are so thankful for your gift, to our family it was much more than a blanket!
