Cuddles From the Heart Project


THE PROJECT: Our goal is to provide some comfort and to bring a smile and a feeling of home to struggling children and their families who are receiving care at The Children’s Hospital in Colorado.

ABOUT US: We are 3 mothers who met while our newborn sons were in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) at The Children’s Hospital in Denver, receiving care for different congenital heart defects.  The three boys were born within 24 hours of one another and have become fast friends.  Shaina (son: Kimble); Teresa (son: Chance); and Julie (son: Adam) are now seeking to help other mothers and their children.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: We are seeking donations of new handmade or store-bought blankets themed for children of all ages (infant through teen).  They can be any size.

Acceptable Items For Donation Fleece No Sew Knot Blankets Receiving Blankets Crocheted Blankets Knitted Blankets Quilts Toddler/Throw Blankets The blankets we collect will be donated to The Children’s Hospital of Denver where our sons received and continue to receive medical care. We are now taking blankets for donation in 2017.  If you would like to make a blanket donation or be a part of this project please send us an email- our information can be found by clicking on the “Contact Us” link at the top of the page.  We would love to hear from you! Email us for drop off/mailing information.  We hope you will support this project and share a touch of home with these special children and families!



  1. Shaina, I am SO excited that you are beginning this wonderful project – just think of all the lives that you will be able to touch by doing this. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help 🙂

  2. This is a really great cause.
    Those children and parents need to feel loved through something like a blanket that they can wrap around themselves.!
    Thank you for organizing this!

  3. Those 3 little hearts are beautiful… such a wonderful pic and a nice one for their 21sts
