AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND - FEBRUARY 07: Jan Aubrey sorts her blanket squares to finish her latest peice for charity on February 7, 2018 in Auckland, New Zealand. Jacinda Ardern announced she and her partner Clarke Gayford are expecting their first child in June. The announcement has inspired the KnitForJacinda movement, encouraging knitters around the country to create baby clothes to donate to charity. The Green Bay community knitting group has been knitting for charity for the last four years, donating their work to children in foster care, new born units at the hospitals as well as dementia patients. The ladies meet Wednesdays and Saturdays. One day is spent knitting for charity the other is for their own knitting. A lot of the wool they use has been donated over the years including from deceased estates and bank grants. (Photo by Fiona Goodall/Getty Images)
Just the kind of good news I needed this morning! An 8-year-old girl in Charlotte is on a mission; to make sure all homeless people in the city have blankets this winter.
Nahla ElBate-Fuentes started selling baked treats and asked her mom to help her create a GoFundMe account so she can raise money to buy blankets for the homeless.
She’s already raised over her initial goal! You can help donate by visiting her GoFundMe Page, CLICK HERE!
