The Friends School of Baltimore Middle School community is excited to announce that our students are participating in a nationwide movement called Blankets of Hope.
Blankets of Hope is a 501(c)3 nonprofit partnering with schools to deliver blankets and handwritten letters of encouragement to people experiencing homelessness. As part of the initiative, every student will be participating in a Blankets of Hope Kindness Workshop. We will have a group empathy exercise, write personalized letters of encouragement, and even perform a loving-kindness meditation. Once the workshop is complete, we'll be delivering 192 Blankets of Hope to Project PLASE in Baltimore.
We are launching this GoFundMe page in an effort to raise money for the blankets we'll need for all students to participate.100% of all donations will go directly to purchasing blankets. At $5 a blanket, we'll need to raise $960 (one for each student to participate). Anything we raise above our goal will be used to provide blankets for students in low-income districts to participate in Blankets of Hope!
The deadline for reaching our goal is 5/14. If you have the means, it would mean the world if you could support us in reaching our goal and help inspire a massive movement of kindness! Thank you so much!!
