Make a comfort blanket for a newly grieving donor family.

image of knitted blanket, "Seeking Comfort" on behalf of the Michigan Donor Family CouncilVolunteers who knit, crochet or quilt are needed to help with this meaningful project. No-sew fleece blankets are also welcome!

These small blankets are provided to donor families, as a way of showing the love and appreciation of our entire donation community. Many families lay them on their loved ones in their final hours, later taking comfort in holding the blankets tight.

Blankets should be approximately 43 inches by 37 inches; neutral colors preferred.

You may mail your completed blankets to the Michigan Donor Family Council, 14125 Terrace Court, Plymouth, MI 48170. Alternatively, you may mail them to or drop them off at Gift of Life Michigan, attn: Alexis Harp, 3861 Research Park Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48108.

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