BoH was started 5 years ago by a friend that I had met at New York Life, Nick Fiorito and his brother Mike. You can read more about their story at the link above.
Why I got involved with BoH is simple - I love the mission and I love these guys. You will never meet a more genuine set of guys in the world and all they want to do is spread the gospel of kindness. It's amazing how something as simple as a warm blanket and a few words from a stranger can give someone hope.
How it works: To help distribute the blankets, Blankets of Hope recruits students across the country. Each student that participates practices empathy and kindness by attaching their own loving handwritten letter to every blanket.*(For more context, watch the video above)
My Goal: My goal is to fundraise enough money to deliver 1000 Blankets of Hope to those in need. At $5 a blanket, we'll need to raise a total of $5000.
(100% OF ALL DONATIONS GO DIRECTLY AND SOLELY TO PROVIDING BLANKETS TO THOSE IN NEED)
If you have the means, it would mean the world if you considered supporting the cause. Together, we can inspire a massive movement of kindness!
