As has become the tradition in our family, guests were asked to bring donations in lieu of traditional party gifts. When Pumpkin found a flyer for Operation Blankets of Love on our doorstep a few weeks before the party, we knew it was the perfect charity work with for her Dog & Cat party. Operation Blankets of Love provides comfort to homeless animals in shelters, rescue groups, foster homes & sanctuaries, making them more adoptable. Along with our party evite, we included a link to this video from the organization so the kids could see how important their donations would be. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our party guests (the representative from Operation Blankets of Love was too). If you live in So Cal and have old blankets & towels, this organization can put them to great use. They also accept other new & gently used pet items. Find more information HERE.
