As a hug imparts comfort and love, so these shawls will embrace, enfold and bring comfort to those who will receive them.
In January 2011, the Michigan Donor Family Council (MDFC) started providing comfort shawls to new organ and tissue donor families. It is our hope that this small gift of compassion will bring these families comfort in their time of sorrow and transition. We are asking for volunteers across the State of Michigan who knit or crochet to help with this project.
Patterns can be simple. Many can be found at www.LionBrand.com Finished size to be approximately 36” by 60.” (Approximately 4-5 skeins)
Shawls can be mailed to Gift of Life Michigan or the Michigan Donor Family Council.
