Ben’s Blankets is a nonprofit that shares at-cost and free weighted blankets with children who have disabilities.
The mission of Ben’s Blankets is to create and give weighted blankets to disabled children who otherwise would not be able to have one. Ben’s Blankets is a nonprofit and we make free or at-cost blankets created by an unpaid volunteer workforce. The blankets are handmade by a small team of seamstresses across the country. We make sure to use the highest quality materials available, such as polypropylene plastic beads to weight the blankets and high quality quilting cotton.
Each blanket is custom made for each person. Whether it’s their favorite cartoon character or sports team, or maybe even just their favorite pattern or colors, each blanket is specific to the person it belongs to, right down to their name embroidered on the back. The blankets are carefully crafted to the specific height and weight of the person who needs it.
The application window is now closed.

A donation of $50 would cover one blanket for a child who needs your support.
