Warmth for the Holidays

Holiday spirit comes early in Uganda this year as mom's are unwrapping some of the highest quality clothing and custom flannel baby blankets. The gifts from Seattle are given to moms and babies at rural maternity clinics. Ten thousand articles of clothing- shirts, pants, and more donated by ExOfficio (worth a quarter million dollars) are being handed out to those with the greatest need.

The baby blankets, made by Seattle-based Swaddle Designs are soft, organic cotton blankets that reminds newborns of being in the womb and helps them sleep better and prevent over-stimulation.

Spreading a little warmth before the Holidays is an answer to many prayers.
