Rachel Stevens is calling out to mums, dads and parents to donate blankets to the Dettol Baby Blanket Donation charity campaign to help babies in need. I don’t know about you but as a mum I have a stack of baby blankets in my airing cupboard going unused, still loved but just not needed any more especially since we’ve upgraded Archie to Big Boys bedding.
I’ve donated all of Archie’s blankets to Dettol who will then wash all donations with their Anti-Bacterial Laundry Cleanser and distribute them to families in need. Not only that, but for every blanket donated they will also donate £1 to Sparks, the children’s medical research charity which pioneers research into medical conditions affecting babies, children and pregnant women. Their work helps many families who are affected by serious illness or disability and every pound raised goes towards helping more families. There is also a Twitter account, @DettolBlanket, where you can #sharethememories of you and your little ones snuggled up and tell the world that you’ve donated for this great cause.
Head on over to Dettol’s donate page for further details about the charity and how you can get involved. If you’re ready to send a blanket in then it’s free and simple, just pop it in the post to: Dettol Baby Blanket Donation, FREEPOST RTKJ-YSGS-SSHR, The Hay Loft, Balcombe Place Stables, Balcombe, RH17 6AZ.
