Kent State Student Blankets Struggling Children with Warmth

Every time Kenzie Carlson designs and creates a blanket for a child in the hospital, she is giving more than a fuzzy, colorful creation – Carlson is giving a piece of her heart.

Carlson started Angel Kisses Blankets in her hometown of Pickerington, Ohio (near Columbus) in 2015 to provide children and their parents with a comforting blanket in a delicate time of need.

Carlson is bringing her organization to Kent State University while she studies special education in the university’s College of Education, Health and Human Services.

The blankets have gone to children with cancer, babies born prematurely, an adolescent with an eating disorder, a pregnant teenage mother, and a child who had been abused – to name a few.

Read more in the Columbus Dispatch about how Carlson uses her own money in her quest to help children.
