WINTER BLANKET

Project Details:

Millions in Bangladesh suffer the cold weather in winter specially those without warm clothes and the elderly. Every year, many organizations in Bangladesh, along with the government, try to provide blankets, sweaters and warm clothes to the underprivileged people. But their help is far from being sufficient.
In an effort to raise fund to provide blankets to the poor, SpaandanB Austin partners with Rotary Club of Dhaka every year and we ask you to sponsor as many blankets as you can to support the cause.

Blanket price – BD Tk 250 or US $3

SpaandanB Austin raised $8639 in previous years for its Winter Blanket project. Hundreds of blankets have been distributed during some of the coldest winter in Bangladesh history through our partner Rotary club of Dhaka in several remote areas. Below are some of our distributions from the past.
