The Big Blanket: A High Quality and Functional Blanket Which Benefits The Homeless Population of Greater Boston Through a Donated Blanket For Every Sale

Started by 13 college freshmen, the Big Blanket is dedicated to helping Boston homelessness through the sale of high quality, luxury blankets in a one-for-one model.

    BOSTON, MA, January 30, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 2018 is on track to be one of the coldest winters on record. With temperatures dipping into negative double digits, many stay inside their homes bundled up waiting for the cold to pass. There's nothing better than being wrapped in a a cozy blanket at the end of the day and relaxing. Whether sitting by the fire, at a sports match, or reading on a rainy day, The Big Blanket makes these winter days much more enjoyable.

The Big Blanket's extra-large size makes it perfect for sharing at sporting events or bundling up inside. The plush micro-fleece provides an extra soft, luxurious feel to make winter days even more cozy.

While a luxury item, every sale of The Big Blanket directly benefits those who may not have the same access to warm homes in an increasingly bitter winter.

The Big Blanket is an ultra-soft, oversized blanket that directly supports individuals experiencing homelessness in the Greater Boston area. For each individual blanket sold, one will be donated to either shelters or individuals without access to basic necessities.

The Big Blanket works directly with these organizations to make sure that the donated blankets are being received by those who need them.

According to HUD's 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report, on a single night in 2017 over half a million people in the USA were homeless. It is a real problem. While the Big Blanket Project will likely not be the sole solution to it, its efforts will have a significant change in the lives of many individuals.

The Big Blanket Project was founded by John Schleck along with twelve other first year undergrads at Babson College, as part of their signature FME program. Taught by professors Bradley George and James Hunt, these students are going beyond the classroom and motivating real change in the greater world.

Students in the program are taught that business should not only be financially viable but should be built on "SEERS" (socially, environmentally, and economically responsible and sustainable). When posed with the challenge of conceiving and developing a business plan for a chance to get funding from the university, the teammates immediately saw this as an opportunity to solve a real problem in their community.

Max Feber, Big Blanket team member says, "I truly believe that this project has the potential to make a significant difference in the lives of thousands of people, if not more than that, across the country".

The Big Blanket believes in "sharing the warmth" between all people to inspire positive change in Boston and the greater world.
