To My Little Valentine,
This year, Valentine’s Day seems like the best day ever.
But one day, you’ll call home crying over a broken heart and declare it a marketing scam. (We all do.)
That’s when I hope you’ll remember how much you love your Many Hands Blankies, made with care by developmentally disabled adults.
It’s there for you when you’re sick and promptly tossed into the washer/dryer after you puke on it. It brightens even the gloomiest days (yours is pink and hotter pink, but it comes in combos like mint and yellow, and lime and purple). It won’t fade or fray, so it will still be around even after Mr. Wrong is gone.
Because, unlike overpriced (and overrated) prix fixe dinner dates, blankies warm your heart forever.
