Binkeez was born after Founder and Executive Director Susan Posterro’s life events and two very close friends experienced the loss of a newborn and pediatric cancer.

While Binkeez started off as a baby blanket in 2008 the bookmark in life of life events and witnessing loss and pediatric cancer forever changed Susan and opened her heart to the important lesson that the greatest gift in life is one’s health and if you have been given that gift of health, then you need to do something with that.

The extension of Binkeez blankets from a baby blanket to a 501c3 was a natural one as Susan would carry forward her mother’s legacy of sewing 30,000 blankets for children in third world countries.  Susan’s legacy and heart print would be for children in the United States of America.

When a family is diagnosed with a life threatening illness, their entire world is turned upside down.  For children, being in the hospital away from home and the smallest of things most take for granted mean the world to a child and family.  While Binkeez blankets bring comfort to a child, they also bring a touch of home.  For parents, the Binkeez blanket is a conscious and very deliberate act of love.

What is so special about Binkeez for Comfort blankets?

What is most important is each and every Binkeez are named after {inspirations} to our Binkeez for Comfort team from children facing the fight for their life, to persons that give forward and inspire us and to those who have received their angel wings.  Each Binkeez for Comfort represents comfort on a personal level.

The design of each  Binkeez for Comfort blanket have been thoughtfully thought out and designed by child life specialists, input from Medical Doctors and most important those that have cared for ill family members and loved ones.

Binkeez for Comfort are constructed from fabrics that are lead-free, hypo allergenic, and the fabric has been independently tested to pass Consumer Safety Act Protection Laws and Government Safety Standards. Each Binkeez Blanket is hand-crafted as a conscious act of love with the intent to figuratively and literally wrap patients, and their families, with the power that unconditional love bears upon healing and survival. Binkeez for comfort are made by hand and by heart.

Binkeez currently supports patients in the leading children’s hospitals in the United States. While the intent has always been to support the most critical pediatric patients, hospitals are taking note of the clinical benefits of Binkeez to improve outcomes among patients and their families.  Child life specialists have taken note that Binkeez have had a healing effect on children.  The benefits extends from a child feeling safe and warm as when stress is eased, a child is feeling rested and free from fear and anxiety, the body is at best for fighting disease. Hospitals have also accredited Binkeez blankets because the fabrics are certified, made in a safe environment free of exposure, sealed in eco-friendly packaging to prevent exposure.   Most important, Binkeez follows the rules of each and every hospital it sends Binkeez to or visits in person.
