Best gift ever times 2.
I bought this blanket as a Christmas gift for my son. He loves it and it matched his couch perfectly. It felt good to be a part of something bigger than myself. A great way to help my brothers and sisters….. my family. I’ll be purchasing another one for my daughter’s birthday soon. Thank you and my our creator continue to bless and prosperous your great efforts.
