#BusyBlankets #FidgetBlankets #AlzheimersSouthAfrica

Busy Blankets - a source of comfort for those suffering from Alzheimer's Disease.

Metis has thrown its weight behind Alzheimer's South Africa and we are looking to raise funds for our Busy Blanket event, which will take place on the 25th of November 2017.

For those who don't know, this amazing project will see us create busy blankets, also commonly known as fidget blankets, for patients with Alzheimer's Disease.

People suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia usually become fidgety and they constantly look for something to touch or hold. When they can't find anything they become agitated or anxious, but research has found that a busy blanket, which is usually very colourful and comes with zippers or buttons, can help lower stress levels.

Our aim is to create 100 blankets as each blanket costs approximately R100 to make. That's why we are appealing to family, friends, clients, acquaintances, community members, and even strangers to support this campaign. 

The R100 will be spent on items such as the actual fleece blanket, embellishments to go on the blanket such as zippers, tassles, pockets, velcro, keys, coins, buttons, shoelaces, ribbons, string for plaiting, toggles, beads, different types of fabrics and anything else that will contribute to making the best busy blanket possible for the Alzheimer's patients. 

The aim is to raise funds to create these blankets at our event in November, which will then be donated to Alzheimer's South Africa. Every contribution makes a big difference to us and the cause, so we thank you for helping us in every and anyway possible!
