Fidget/Sensory Blanket for Alzheimer's
"This blanket was designed for a cause- to spread hope, comfort and stability to all those struggling with alzheimers and other diseases that could leave them struggling with memory and cognitive abilities. It is also a blanket that toddlers and children with special needs can use to develop motor skills. Granted, there are fidget blankets you can buy. But I like to believe that if we are blessed with the ability and have the skill to create something, we should never hesitate to use it for a good cause. Make as many of this blanket as you can, and donate them!"
