What is a blanket to you?
In our house they have many uses, occasionally they are used just to keep you warm, but more commonly they are used for dens, beaches, pretendingto have breakfast in bed or even being a caterpillar.
And having even used them to be a playmat while Tim was staying in hospital I understand just how important a blanket can be.
But there are many babies and children that will never feel the comfort a warm, clean blanket can bring.
I am proud to be able to support Dettol and their ambassador Rachel Stevens working together to make a difference to children’s health both at home and aboard, by collecting baby blankets.
Did you know that for every baby blanket donated, Dettol will donate £1 to sparks to help improve children’s health in the UK.
Why baby blankets?
Baby blankets symbolise a very special time in both a mother and child’s life, holding many precious memories of the early days of life. However, many babies across the world will never get the chance to experience even the simple comfort that a warm, hygienically clean blanket brings.
Once collected, Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser will ditch the bacteria by ensuring the baby blankets are hygienically washed before being re-distributed to families in need. Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser has also pledged to donate £1 to Sparks for every blanket collected to raise much needed funds for UK families who are affected by childhood illness or disability up to 5,000 blankets.
