My friend Liz posted this story about her mom on her blog.
Last year during one of her lessons on traditions she showed the students a picture of a little girl on Santa's lap and asked them what they thought she was asking him for. A little boy in kindergarten responded immediately by saying that she was asking for a blanket. My mom responded by asking why, and the little boy said, "Because her body shakes and wakes her up at night because she is cold."
Her family has started a Blankets for Christmas campaign to donate fleece blankets to children in need. Read more here to find out how you can help.
