I talked to Betty N. at Star of Hope today. She called to tell me how thrilled everyone was when the blankets were distributed. She said that they gave many of them to the mothers that picked up their babies in the nursery that week. She said they were delighted and overwhelmed because they did not have a nice blanket for their baby before this. The others were given out to children as an incentive. They meet in a group meeting and earn points by doing various things. This way they earned their blankets and were delighted. She said that everyone has been thrilled about the whole idea, and she was very excited to hear that we would have over 50 to donate before the holidays. She said that we didn't have to wait for the holidays to bring them because they always need blankets, and it worked out to be a very positive situation for the center. She also said that any of our members were welcome to come by for a tour, and that she hoped to see more of us the next time we delivered blankets. I am assuming that we will make several trips between now and Thanksgiving, because I don't have room at my house to store 50 blankets. There are already 7 in my closet!
I would like to think that I can't be described in a short paragraph. Some adjectives that come to mind: curious, caring, kind, generous, excitable, motivated, emotional, fun, organized. What do you think? Claire
