Help Grieving Families

Support a Grieving Family with a Comfort Blanket

Seeking ComfortGift of Life and its partners give small blankets to new donor families to show the love and appreciation of our entire donation community. Anyone who can knit, crochet or quilt can help with this deeply meaningful project. No-sew fleece blankets are also welcome.

Many donor families place these blankets on their loved one during their final hours, then continue to cherish the blanket as a reminder of their family member and of the power of donation.

Blankets should be about 43-inches by 37-inches, with neutral colors preferred. Mail completed blankets to the Michigan Donor Family Council, 14125 Terrace Court, Plymouth, MI 48170; or mail them to or drop them off at Gift of Life Michigan, Attn: Alexis Weatherholt, 3861 Research Park Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48108.

Please include your name, address and connection to donation on a note with the blanket.
