There are moms who write about things (me), and then there are moms who write about things and create great initiatives, like Chantal, aka Toppie se Vrou.
Chantal works, is a mom to three, and makes blankets, and has started #1for1blankets. How it works is when you order a blanket of any size, Chantal will make a second medium-sized blanket and donate it to the Amazing Grace children’s home. You can also order a pet’s blanket, with the second one going to the SPCA. Chantal isn’t making any profit – the money you pay is covering the costs of the making of the blankets.
Chantal can make plain, patterned or themed blankets, such as Spider-Man, Cars, Angry Birds, Dora the Explorer , Winnie the Pooh, Hello Kitty, Toy Story and Minnie Mouse. They make great snuggle/TV watching blankets, and it’s a win-win purchase.
