We were inspired by Ohio Rotarians generosity last year to bring to life a statewide service project, providing tens of thousands of books to students in Mongolia. This year, we are hoping to keep the tradition alive by organizing another statewide service project. The governors-elect of Districts 6600, 6630, 6650, 6670 and 6690 invite you to support My Very Own Blanket, in an effort to provide 14,000 blankets to children in Ohio's foster care system by All Ohio P.E.T.S. on March 8, 2019.
My Very Own Blanket is a non-profit organization in central Ohio that brings comfort and warmth to Ohio's foster children with the gift of blankets. The blankets are distributed to children in need by children services agencies and other service providers. For many children, this might be the very first belonging that they can call "mine."
Please invite your club to participate in this important effort! Rotarians can make blankets to donate or make monetary donations. A donation of just $10 will sponsor one blanket for a child in need. Of course, bragging rights will go to the district that contributes the most toward the effort.
Visit donorbox.org/rotary-2018 and make sure you enter your district number in the appropriate field so that your contribution may be counted in your district's total.

Please help us meet our goal of providing 14,000 blankets for children in foster care. Get creative about ways for your club to support the project. Should you have any questions, please contact your Assistant Governor or District Governor-elect.
It's not "just a blanket."
It's a prized possession & a safe haven.
