Help Haiti: Cuddly Blankets From Baby Zoowon

Baby Zoowon (Amharic for Elephant) is an amazing company dedicated to helping orphans and children in need. As a mother to three children, owner Sherry Lopez became aware of the desperate need. Currently in the process of adopting from Ethiopia, Sherry realized that with Baby Zoowon, people could make a difference in the life of a child – one purchase at a time. For each blanket purchased, Baby Zoowon donates a blanket to a child in need and donates a portion of every sale to help families with the overwhelming cost of adoption.

Why blankets you may ask? According to Judith Jerald, MSW and Early Childhood Advisor to Save the Children’s U.S. Programs. “Children born into poverty often face a higher level of stress and more anxiety-producing situations than those from more affluent families, making their trusted blanket all the more important. Research and experience have shown that a favorite blanket can be a soothing and comforting transitional object as children face changes early in life and can actually help them develop emotionally”.

If you are looking for a cuddly and cozy gift for that new bundle of joy or a keepsake gift for that special little someone be sure to check out Baby Zoowon. For 3 more days they will be donating 20% from all sales to help the children in Haiti.
