I know lately, it’s been pretty quiet around here. More is explained in my other blog post Season of Sacrifice.
There are several changes occurring, including going back to the basics of the original location of my initial website on WordPress. Here I will have separate locations for AncaLogy and Blankets of Blessings. These separate pages will house updates for both entities.
In other more exciting news…
I wanted to officially announce the plans I have for Blankets of Blessings! I have been making preparations to transform Blankets of Blessings into a Non-Profit. My original plan was to have this part completed by the end of the year, and there may still be time God willing, but everything happens in its own time, so I am not rushing anything.
Starting a Non-Profit does of course require the payment of several fees, etc. This is the main reason I’ve been on hold for the past month, especially with just having moved into my new, incredibly humble, but extremely cozy, apartment. Most of my finances had to be diverted to that. I was also dealing with a few, minor health issues, but I am feeling better now!
To assist with the fees I just mentioned, I’ve also applied for a start-up grant, being offered by Buy From a Black Woman. November is their 2019 Buy From a Black Woman Awareness Month!
This grant has served to help many outstanding Black Women kick-start their dreams and propel them to success while making a difference in their communities. I couldn’t have been happier to come across it and apply for it. Whoever receives this grant coming up on the 19th, their Buy From a Black Woman Awareness Day, I pray for prosperity in your endeavors!
Please, please check out Buy From a Black Woman and support them as well!
As I gear back up for the holiday season, please remember that every blanket that is purchased helps to fund Blankets of Blessings’ startup fees, while also supporting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
Surprise someone with a nice, cozy and warm blanket, the weather is starting to get colder for sure!
Each blanket comes with an optional prayer request should you need prayer for anything. This is indicated by a different color yarn embedded in the blanket.
