BGSU working on making fleece blankets for the foster children of Adoption Rhode Island

HopefullRI

HopefullRI is a group of , not only Rhode Islanders, but people who are dedicated to spreading awareness, hope and dignity to the children in foster care at Adoption Rhode Island. Making handmade fleece blankets, pillows and bags with love. Our mission is to inspire people to get involved and help out. Showing these kids there is a community of people who care!

What is the need?

There are over over 1,922 ( as of 2017 ) children in foster care in the state of Rhode Island. These children are often moved from home to home, sometimes unexpectedly.  Their minimal belongings are often put in trash bags. 

Our hope is to provide these children with a cozy fleece blanket and bag made with love to call their own!

Our goal is to inspire schools, churches, community groups and people to help HopefullRI provide all the foster children of ARI with fleece blankets and bags.

What can we do?

MAKE A BLANKET* SPONSOR A BAG * HELP RAISE AWARENESS

We can provide hope to these children by crafting child-friendly bags and fleece blankets of all kinds. Drawstring bags and backpacks for all ages, will allow these children to pack and keep what they hold dear.

Hand-crafted bags, comfy fleece blankets and fleece pillows will give the children a sense of security and comfort that being with their own possessions can bring during times that can be tough.
