Heartwarmers is a non-profit organization based in the whimsical little town of Sisters, Oregon.
Sisters offers an ambiance that cannot be matched. It is a city that will truly warm your heart. With a population of about 2,000 people, the term ‘city’ has to be used very loosely. Sisters is a place that you would instantly think of when you hear about a non-profit like Heartwarmers, an organization that offers incredibly sweet, thoughtful and hand-made gifts.
Heartwarmers provides comfort to children and adults that are in crisis. They hand make “cut and tie” (no sew) blankets and deliver them to other area non-profits for distribution. These blankets scream LOVE which is immediately felt when you are wrapped up in one.
There are countless prints and patterns Heartwarmers uses, as they are made to appeal to who they are being given to, from two-year-old old little boys that love trucks to eight-year-old girls that love pink. Adults are brought to tears of gratitude as they find comfort in a Heartwarmers’ blanket. Just knowing that somebody made their blanket with heart and soul is as great of a gift as they come.
In addition to the blanket, the children also receive a handmade teddy bear. The adult’s blanket is usually paired with lotion, socks and a hat. In addition to all of this, each blanket comes with its own personal and unique set of hearts.
Each heart is cut from one of the 3,000 blankets made to date, representing the love and compassion that was put into each one of them.
Bravo to the founders of Heartwarmers as well as their countless volunteers that have changed the lives of thousands! You all are the definition of what is good in the world. We here at Hooray Cafe salute and thank you!
