The gift of warmth 




Few of us would include having a blanket to keep us warm at night as a luxury, yet for many people in Bangladesh, a warm blanket could be the difference between sickness and health.  

But often that blanket - even at just $10 - is financially out of reach.

Every winter the night-time temperature falls to the 50s or below.   Without the ability to stay warm, people, particularly those in rural areas, suffer greatly through the cold season. Pneumonia and other lung infections are rampant from sleeping in cold, damp conditions with little to keep warm.

Every year we distribute hundreds of thick, warm blankets in rural villages.  We've received many pleas for help from other villages that went unanswered. Please help us answer these requests for blankets by donating any amount you can. 


And please tell your friends about The Gift of Warmth Bangladesh.


why blankets?

For many people in Bangladeshi villages, the winter nights are very cold and damp. Their homes are bamboo and mud. Their only heat – a small fire.


You can help a child stay warm, dry and healthy enough to attend school, a grandmother or a mother well enough to care for the family, or for a father who must work to provide food and shelter for his family.

We are a 501 (c)(3) organization

The Gift of Warmth Bangladesh was founded on Thanksgiving Day 2014 by Bipulanda Sraman, a Bangladeshi Buddhist monk, and Jeanie Donelson.  Every December-January since then we have distributed warm blankets in poor, rural villages in the Chittagong Division of Bangladesh.  

 All blankets are purchased in Bangladesh, supporting the local economy.

Over 90% of every dollar collected goes directly to the purchase and distribution of blankets in Bangladesh.


 We are a 501(c)(3) organization.
