The Origin of Warrior Blankets.

The Origin of Warrior Blankets.

My name is Jess and I founded Warrior Blankets in 2016. I’m now 19, and I live with chronic illnesses including Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Through my journey with chronic illness I came to find that feelings of isolation and loneliness resonated with many in the chronic illness community. When a friend was sicker than her usual, I discovered a number of blanket programs for the chronically ill, but they were all USA only, and I was inspired to start Warrior Blankets, in the hopes of helping to reduce the isolation and feelings of being alone that often come with chronic illness.

 

Warrior Blankets started small, on my personal Instagram account, no logo, website or Facebook page. The blankets sent out were mostly made of two layers of polar fleece fringed and tied together, a method called a no-sew fleece blanket. This changed over to only sewn blankets shortly after the project became more popular as they were more durable and less painful to make. This opened up more types of fabric, more patterns and colours and even more personalization to each blanket. 

 

Every blanket sent has two layers of high-quality material, double sewn, a ribbon around it, a tag to show it's authentic and is posted free of charge to the recipient thanks to the generosity of donors, but most importantly, is made with love.

 

With the help of my incredibly supportive family and some very supportive friends and donors I’ve now sent out over THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY blankets to children, teenagers and young adults across the country in almost every state battling a wide variety of illnesses, as you've seen from some of the above testimonials. 

 

With your help, Warrior Blankets can continue to put smiles on the faces of chronically ill young Australians (like pictured above) for years to come, if you can donate (via PayPal.Me or via YouCaring), it's gratefully appreciated, sharing the project is also incredibly helpful. 

 

               Thanks for your support,

               Jessica, the founder of Warrior Blankets.
