Making a Difference

You Can Help

We started with the idea of making quilts to bring comfort to others, and, in turn, we also have been blessed with so many people wanting to help us make this dream come true! We couldn’t have done this without countless hours of help from volunteers and the community and donations of all kinds!

Wllma and Lyle Hamilton, both 76 years old, started the nonprofit in 2005 by making and transporting 1,000 blankets to Hurricane Katrina damaged Mississippi. Just before the disaster, two of their grown children had died unexpectedly, fueling their desire to help others.

“I was very depressed. God gave me another job to do. That was to bless other kids. Hopefully, the kids they never got to help in their life,” Wilma Hamilton says.

Since then, the couple has blanketed 6,000 kids with love and comfort.

Today, the operations are hoping to grow because the need is so great. There are kids everywhere who need to know that they are loved and that God is watching over them.

We encourage you to get involved. There are so many ways you can help.
