Blanket the Country in Warmth 2017

Blanket the Country in Warmth 2017 - Know that good feeling you get someone shares good vibes with you through a warm message, whether it be via text, phone call, or scrolling through social media? We're hoping you can help us spread that warm feeling across Canada this month as part of Urban Barn's annual Blanket the Country in Warmth initiative which is supporting several shelters across Canada. Blanket the Country in Warmth has achieved much more than its donation numbers. It has rallied Canadians to show community support and spread warmth and good vibes, donating more than 58,000 blankets to shelters across the country since 2012. This year, Urban Barn wants to make a bigger impact by blanketing the country in warmth figuratively and literally - asking Canadians to support by donating a blanket in-store or online and by sharing a warm message on the Blanket the Country in Warmth website, in-store, and on social media by tagging @UrbanBarn and #Blanketthecountry.
