Millions of people in the world’s poorest countries are ill-prepared when winter hits. Many of them lack money for food so buying blankets is out of the question. People often suffer from the cold, and some even freeze to death. Although we ship thousands of donated comforters around the world, we are unable to ship comforters into many countries. In these countries, we provide funds to purchase blankets in the country to distribute to the needy. On average, the delivered price of a good, warm blanket bought directly from factories is about $25.
