Brady's Blankets

I wanted to let everyone know about this great charity I found through minutes for Making a Difference

This organization makes fleece blankets for babies and children that are in intensive care. They are asking for anyone who would like to participate to make some fleece blankets and send them to the organization so they can donate them to various hospital NICU's and PICU's

This is some information about Brady's Smile:

“On March 16, 2006, Brady Blaine Hinton was born at St. Vincent’s hospital in Bridgeport, CT. He passed away two years later on March 16, 2008, his 2nd birthday. In between those dates, Brady endured a life complicated by intricate medical conditions. Through everything his little body endured, he never stopped smiling. He beamed from ear-to-ear when listening to music and experiencing the brightest of lights. He showed people that despite it all, you can maintain a positive attitude.

Having spent so much time in an ICU with Brady, we know how difficult and trying it can be on the child and care givers. Not a second would pass when we didn’t try to make Brady as comfortable as possible in the ICU environment, by doing things like filling his crib with stuffed animals, music and constant love. While Brady was in the hospital, we received a blanket from an ICU nurse, which we used to bundle him up every night. He truly seemed more comfortable in this type of material and he would grab the blanket and rub it against his cheek.

The Brady Blankets program will provide homemade fleece blankets to babies and children in the NBSCU and PICU. Fleece blankets help provide a “secure” feeling to babies, especially premature babies, and are very soft and snuggly. It is our goal to provide blankets to all babies in both units as well as children who are coming out of surgery. Each blanket will be tied with a Brady’s Smile ribbon and will go home with the child upon discharge.”
