My name is Angel Magnussen and I am 19 years old. I am proud to say I have Down syndrome. My Registered Non-Profit Foundation is called Hugginz By Angel.
I sew soft colorful Hugginz blankets and mail them to critically ill kids and kids with special needs worldwide.
I want sick kids to be wrapped in a warm hug. That's why I named my foundation 'Hugginz by Angel. Before I mail each blanket I fill it with love, hugs and prayers for the child. I have lots of doctors and go to hospitals to see them often. I am always scared at the hospital.
I don't want kids to feel scared so I hope my Hugginz blankets will help them to feel safe when they have to stay at the hospital or go for surgery. There are many sick kids waiting for their own Hugginz blanket but I need your donations to help me make them for the kids.
I am not paid a wage and I volunteer all of my time to my mission. I work in my Hugginz Studio sewing blankets for sick kids every day. I sew 10 blankets a week and it costs between $15 and $30 to mail each blanket to the children. The batting costs $500 per roll and I use one roll per month. I use 4 meters of material to sew every Hugginz blanket and this costs between $12 and $17 per meter. Donations to the Hugginz By Angel Foundation go towards postage, batting and materials to sew the blankets with.
Please watch my story below to see the love I put into each blanket that I sew. Please join #TeamHugginz and help me help sick kids. Thank you love Angel www.facebook.com/AngelMagnussen
