When Angel Covers started back in 2002, it was born out of the need two moms had to do something – anything – to reach out to the tens of thousands of disadvantaged children in poverty-stricken areas of the world. While many people think about making a difference, these two friends took their casual conversations about changing the world and turned them into action. From there, they purchased fleece to make the first of thousands of Angel Cover blankets, and Squeaky Shoes soon followed. Since its inception, Angel Covers has evolved into a program that does much more than sell blankets and shoes to help thousands of children. Homes have been built, food has been provided, medical care is no longer out of reach, schools have been strengthened, and most importantly, hope has been provided to children around the world.
Products to Fuel Support Efforts
Since 2002, Angel Covers has sold more than 2060 blankets and 13,000 pairs of Squeaky Shoes, and many more innovative products have been added to the Angel Covers product line. With a focus on orphanages and schools in Kenya and China, 100% of the profits from the sale of Angel Covers products support disadvantaged children in those areas and others. The goal of Angel Covers is to provide children with the education, nutrition, medical care, and a home-like setting all children need in order to grow and thrive.
Volunteers Make It Work
Angel Covers is a 501(c)(3) organization managed and operated completely by volunteers. No one receives a salary from Angel Covers. Currently, Angel Covers has more than 30 volunteers working around the globe to keep help us achieve our mission of caring for orphaned and destitute children around the world. Funds are raised through online product sales, generous donations, and grassroots fundraising efforts. Because we are completely volunteer run, we’ve been able to keep administrative costs at less than 5%. We pride ourselves on fiscal accountability and ensure that every possible dollar raised goes to the children in our programs.
