Comfort 4 Children was started in 2013 by McKensee Harris who was then a Sophomore in High School.
McKensee has always been sensitive to those less fortunate and even at that young busy age she knew she had to do something to help others.
As a young girl she had learned to sew and on of her first sewing projects was a blanket she made for an elderly mad who didn't have any close family. Unfortunately he passed away before she was able to give him the blanket.
She combined her love for people with her disappointment not being able to share the first blanket she made into a charity in which her hope is by using the warmth & Comfort of blankets to break down barriers of race, culture, religion and other differences.

Through our work and donations and your investment in a blanket, we provide comfort and warmth to a child less fortunate.
We personally make 2 identical blankets by earning donations of material or raising funds to purchase material and supplies to create the blankets.
One blanket is sold at retail and the matching identical blanket is then shipped out to a child in need somewhere in the world. The proceeds from the retail sales pay for the shipping and delivery of the 2nd blanket to the child in need.
When you buy a Comfort 4 Children blanket you have the option to fill out a simple postcard and when the charity blanket is shipped out to a child you will receive the postcard back with the region and country of our beautiful and wonderfully diverse world that your identical blanket was sent.
