Warmth for Ukraine

We have received over 750 quilts for Ukraine Newcomers. The Blankets of Love were distributed through the Ukrainian Canadian Social Services in Edmonton and St. Vladimir’s Ukrainian Orthodox Sabor in Calgary. 

Feedback from the newcomers has been very positive and each person is so very grateful for their Blanket of Love.

A heartfelt  thank you to all the quilters who participated.

Colorful Threads

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
