Behind The Scenes

The Gift of Warmth


We’re nearing the final days of our Blanket the Country campaign. With your support we have donated over 8000 blankets to shelters across Canada. Our shelters are so excited to receive the blankets and your generous donations have made this possible. We’ve made an incredibly positive impact so far, but we still have a long way to go.

For five years, our Blanket the Country in Warmth campaign has given the gift of warmth to people in need. We believe that warmth means more than just the physical – it’s a feeling of hope and a sense of belonging.  While this time of year is often one of joy and happiness – with family gatherings, holiday events and celebrations – it can often be a hidden struggle to many around us. Without the support of family and friends, and no home to call their own, this time of year is often a painful reminder to those living in shelters.

We encourage you to give the gift of warmth this season. For only $5, you can offer a glimmer of hope to someone in need. Head to your local Urban Barn store and give the gift of warmth in the form of a cozy fleece blanket. Let your generosity be a reminder of what this season is truly about.
