What is there to be said here? Zaenah's Blanket Foundation has established itself as one of the leading organizations in the area of newborn care and child welfare. ZBF always stands at the ready and is quick to respond at a moment's notice when there is a family in need. From blankets, to books, to toys, and food, ZBF moves swiftly to ensure a family has what it needs when it is time to bring their newborn baby home. The mission mantra is "...wrapping children in love 1 blanket at a time" and the organization lives up to that creed. Meeting the needs of newborns is not an easy task but ZBF is up to the challenge. Not resting on its laurels, ZBF incorporated infant and child CPR as a major part of its service to the community. Understanding that there are differences between adult and child cpr can prove to be a lifeline for a child in distress, and giving caregivers this knowledge can serve as calming force in a time of crisis. While I personally have not needed the services of ZBF, I have certainly seen the organization in action. I hope to see them continue to grow and provide their services for years to come.

Zaenahs Blanket Foundation provides a great service to the community both through the services it provides directly and also for the opportunities it provides to others to give. As a volunteer at several community events, it has been heartwarming to see families connected with items they need. Individuals who wish to donate can be assured that their donations directly benefit those who need them.

"Every charitable act is a stepping stone towards heaven." Henry Ward Beecher. If this is true, then Joshlyn Perry Aughburns and the members of ZBF will truly enter the gates of heaven. I have seen the smiles and the sense of relief on the faces of the community that ZBF has served. ZBF's dedication to reduce the infant mortality rate by donating the basic essentials such as blankets, bottles and layette sets, to providing free or low cost CPR classes to families and the community helps ZBF earn a place in heaven.

I am excited to share my experience with Zeanah's Blanket with you. I have watched the community embrace the gifts that have been offered through this foundation. As a volunteer I have delivered gifts to mothers of newborns on Christmas Day, the gratitude is overwhelming. Zeanah's Blanket Foundation's founder has struggled to make this work meaningful. Through community donations and fund raisers she has been able to deliver much needed baby clothes as well as other resources to needed families. It would be wonderful to see the mission of Zeanah's Blanket Foundation, to develop and enhance the lives of families through much needed services come to fruition.
