December 14, 2007 (FPRC) -- Over 4,300 orphan babies have Sassy Scrubs President, Karen Bradley, and her Blankets for Babies Project to thank for keeping them warm at night. She has been making and sending baby blankets to orphanages in China for over a decade. Karen requested addresses of needy orphanages along with their number of children needing blankets, and would collect and make blankets to meet those needs. The addresses were supplied by an adoption agency based in Colorado, called Chinese Children Adoption International (CCAI). Through their work together, Karen sent over 2,000 baby blankets to waiting children in China during this ten-year period.
In January, 2007, she was asked by CCAI to step in when China’s Center for Adoption Affairs noticed the flood of blankets coming from Penn Yan, New York, and the requests for orphanage information coming from the Colorado adoption agency. China wished to partner with the Colorado agency to make Karen’s Blankets for Babies Project an official project, after noticing how this need was being filled. Karen, of course, agreed!
In less than a year since that date, Karen has collected baby blankets at her company, scrubs uniform manufacturer and e-tailer, Sassy Scrubs, and has facilitated the shipping of an additional 2,300 baby blankets to waiting children in orphanages in China. Donated by families and church and youth groups across the country, or made by her staff from scrap scrubs fabric from her medical scrubs uniform business, the blankets keep stacking up, waiting for their turn to be shipped to a waiting, needy orphanage.
In November 2007, Karen was honored to be chosen by Chinese Children Adoption International as a Volunteer of the Year. Regarding the award given to their 2007 Volunteers of the Year, the adoption agency states “Your efforts are so essential and truly help make a difference in the lives of Chinese children”. Karen received an award certificate written in Chinese, and a cloisonne plaque featuring the likenesses of two Chinese children as keepsakes of this honor.
Karen expects there to be no change in her efforts to deliver blankets to the waiting children of China. She is inspired by her Volunteer of the Year honor to continue her Blankets for Babies Project until every baby in every orphanage has a blanket with which to be comforted and warmed each night. She’ll keep busy doing just that.
