Sheep Dreamzzz is part of a 501(c)(3) non-profit called Sheep Not Goats. We think the best solution to poverty is employment. That’s why we’ve trained women in Nicaragua to be first-rate knitters. They meet in our home there Monday through Friday mornings to make Sheep Dreamzzz baby blankets. The environment is safe, clean, and comfortable. They talk and listen to music, and they help each other out so as that as many as possible finish a blanket each week.

We’re a tax-exempt 501(c) (3) charitable organization, and we do accept donations, but here we are just asking you to purchase one baby blanket. Everyone needs a baby gift from time to time, whether it’s for the new addition to a friend’s family or to your own, or perhaps for a new grandchild.

Most of what we receive for each blanket goes to the woman who made it. As “management” we receive nothing, and in 7-1/2 years working in Nicaragua, we never have. So please purchase one of these beautiful handmade blankets. You will have a luxurious gift to give, but you will also help a woman who is working hard to help herself and her family. And when you give your gift you can tell the story of how it was made and who it helped.

The sale of one blanket feeds a family for a week.

“Someone gave me a Sheep Dreamzzz blanket after I had my third baby and it is, hands down, my favorite of all the baby blankets we’ve had.” – Katie (New York)
