What is a Bink-A-Thon
By: Susan

A Bink-A-Thon is an event where a large group gathers for one day to make as many blankets as possible to be given to a local shelter or hospital. There are stations set up for sewing, tying the blankets off with yarn, painting squares (younger children love this part) and just organizing the fabric.

Susan Finch
Mark your calendars and rev your sewing machines for the next Portland, Oregon Binky Patrol Bink-a-thon, on Monday, January 17th (MLK Day itself!) where we will again be working towards a goal of making as many blankets as possible in just a handful of hours. The blankets we make will find their way to families with children in need of comfort and warmth.

2010 Villa Park, CA Bink-A-Thon
Carolyn Berndt, Director
Villa Park Bink-a-ThonOn Oct 3rd, Villa Park City Hall was buzzing with volunteers making ultra soft fleece blankets for children in need of comfort. The group turned out 35 blankets in less than 3 hours! Adding 20 previously made ones, 55 in total were given to the Kinship Center, to help Orange County foster children. “It’s always so heartwarming to see the community, and especially so many kids, joining together to support such a great cause!” said event coordinator Carolyn Berndt.

Laguna Beach High School's library seems to be the perfect home for Binky Patrol's local Bink-A-Thon.

70 volunteers, including over 35 students and girl scouts helped to make this event so successful.
