The Blue Elephants is selling elephant security blankets and the patterns to raise money for March of Dimes. A portion of the profits from the pattern and elephant blanket sales will go into this fundraiser, along with any donations contributed here. There are a few ways to get involved, so read on to find out more you can do to help!
The Blue Elephants is a knitting and crochet blog I run, and as my reach grows, I want to use this space to make a difference. March of Dimes is a nonprofit organization that fights for moms and babies to have healthy starts. Through educational programs, funding research and providing comfort to families and babies in NICU, March of Dimes has been helping families for 80 years.
March of Dimes was founded in 1938 by Franklin D. Roosevelt to fight polio. Since then, a polio vaccine was created and the focus of the organization shifted to preventing birth defects and infant mortality. The goal of March of Dimes is to educate, fund research, and advocate for the health of moms and babies. Pretty cool, right?
