Winter Campaign 23/24
Join us in providing Blankets of Love to patients for the Holiday Season. Every September through to March we collect donated quilts from quilters and deliver them to patients in hospital receivng treatment for mental illness. This campaign is our most successful program and we have gifted over 1,000 Blankets of Love for Christmas Day.
Blankets of Love Foundation for Mental Health is a national charitable organization
that provides quilts to patients who are in hospital for the treatment of mental illness.
By doing this we aim to help patients in their time of need.
Quilts are handcrafted by people in the community and then generously donated to Hospitals that offer mental health services across Canada

For some a struggle does ensue
As years begin their toll
Minds seared with pain and breaking
Hard tearing of the soul.
It’s at these times, perhaps a hint
Of humanness and care
Delivered to the suffering
Will bring light to darkness there.
The story goes some years ago
A Mom with hurting heart
Picked up a quilt her Grandma’d made
She feared she’d break apart.
As she held the quilt about her
Wrapped it gently round her being
She felt a peace and love intense
Cared for, sight unseeing.
And so the project started
Would those given such a gift
A Blanket of Love of their own
Feel a momentary lift?
Blankets of Love, over decades now
Collects quilts made by all volunteers
Delivered to those with mental illness
Bringing kindness through the tears.
Those who sleep under a quilt, sleep under a
Blanket of Love
I feel comforted with my blanket of love. thank you
