SHARING the WEIGHT • Blanket Workshops
Sharing the Weight is a non-profit group based in Iowa. The group works with volunteers to create and distribute, totally free of charge, weighted blankets for children with special needs. These blankets, which are stuffed with poly pellets, are typically valued at a cost of $100 - $450. To date, Sharing the Weight has made and distributed over 900 blankets, an approximate $225,000 value, to families in need in 44 states and five foreign countries. While the group meets regularly to create the blankets, there are over 3,000 on the waiting list.
