Baby, it’s cold outside. Blanket BC hopes to help make it less so for hundreds of homeless people living on the streets in BC this year with their annual Blanket Drive on the Line campaign. For the second year in a row, Mhairi Petrovic has chosen this cause as her Holiday Act of Kindness. She’s not in it alone though because she has reached out to her clients, family and friends to all get involved. One person donates one blanket, but twenty people donate twenty blankets. It’s kindness on steroids, and it all goes to help those less fortunate during the coldest time of the year.

Mhairi’s first step was to email out to all her clients. A two-part email as she wished them all happy holidays and invited them to participate in her blanket drive for Blanket BC. The next step is to visit each of those clients and pick up the donated blankets.

Mhairi hasn’t limited her blanket drive to only clients. At a family dinner, she encouraged family members to bring a blanket instead of a bottle of wine. A hostess gift that gives back.

With all these blankets collected now, all that is left for her to do is pile them into the back of her car and deliver them to Blanket BC.

That is a whole lot of blankets to keep a whole lot of people warm this Winter season. Every year Blanket BC hosts a blanket drive on the Skytrain route with boxes for blanket drop offs. If you’ve missed it don’t worry because they still want your blankets. You can also volunteer with them if this cause warms your heart.
