Another "Thank You"

A blanket not only comforts a child, it can inspire someone to make a blanket for another child.
Hi,

My name is Crystal and my son Caleb recently had a visit to the emergency room. The nurse gave Caleb one of your blankets and he loves it. It really comforted him during the long hours that we were in the hospital. This was a week ago and he still sleeps with it and carries it around everywhere.

My mother sees how this blanket effected Caleb and now she really wants to get involved to help other children.  How can she get information?
Thank you.
