Share Warmth, Information, and Goodness!

28 Dec

It has been about a year since I started Blanket Statements. I can’t really decide what the exact anniversary is since it was all kind of a month-long whirlwind of activity, but I’m counting that first order as the official “start of something” and the anniversary of that is TODAY!

So happy anniversary to Blanket Statements. And all of you who helped to make it a success. I certainly couldn’t do it without all of your support and encouragement. Remember to keep spreading the word and sharing the warmth!

To celebrate this first anniversary, we are going to hold our first giveaway:


The Share Warmth, Information, and Goodness Giveaway.

I was lucky enough to be selected for Blake Mycoskie’s “Books for Bloggers” program in which Blake, the founder of TOMS shoes, donated an extra copy of his book Start Something That Matters to me to give away. In keeping with his guidelines, I’m offering his book, and also a copy of the book Work on Purpose by Lara Galinsky along with one of our snuggly blankets. This trio will offer you some excellent reading material and a blankie to snuggle up in while reading.

I found both of these books to be fascinating – not just as someone who has a social enterprise, but as a person who was searching for a way to do something more with my life. Both of these books are truly inspirational. And as always, a second, identical blanket will be donated to a women’s shelter to help a woman in need.
