Ammee & Co. has been donating blankets for babies since it was founded in 2008. Cony Larsen, Founder of Ammee & Co., began her “love 1, give 1” project after viewing a documentary about Honduran newborns being sent home from the hospital wrapped in newspaper because they had no blankets after severe flooding had devastated the country.
She also learned that similar conditions existed in Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and other countries. She decided that Ammee & Co. would be committed to making the world a better and softer place for under-privileged children.
Ammee's blankets are donated to our local Primary Children's Hospital NICU in Salt Lake City, UT, local fire/police departments, and to less privileged children at el Hermano Pedro Orphanage in Antigua, Guatemala.
Every Transaction makes a difference
Our commitment goes beyond providing our customers with the best in Hemstitched baby products and customer service. We are committed to making a difference in the way a newborn begins life in our world and in the communities we serve. Our wish is for every newborn to have a soft, warm, and cuddly blanket they can be bundled in when they arrive to this world.
We encourage our customers to make a blanket for a loved one and a blanket to donate. We also offer special discounts to customers that donate their blankets to Project Linus. You can also purchase an Ammee's Blanket to donate to a needy child and be an essential part of our “love 1, give 1” movement!
