Online PR News – 16-May-2011 – – Ink Bean Turns 1 Year Old: The Ink Bean organization, who works to raise money for premature babies and their mothers as well as endangered animals such as the panda bear has recently turned a year old. In their first year of operation they have worked hard to help many premature babies by making blanket for the babies and socks for the mothers. The Ink Bean organization is determined to help as many people and animals as they can.
Ink Bean has enlisted the help of many new writers. The company is officially now an ezine that is published three times a week – and sometimes send special issues on the holidays. New writers are given the chance to help support the organization whilst also having their work published online for fellow writers and supporters to see. The company aims to help new (and old!) writers as much as possible. Because the company is a non profit the writers are not paid. However with themed competitions on the way, there may also be some special prizes for the best writers in specific niches.
In preparation for Christmas, the Ink Bean founder Chimica Robinson is aiming to make 100 blankets for premature babies. December is the month in which most premature babies are born, and so with the help of Ink Bean, more babies can be cared for and kept warm during the harsh winter months. Hypothermia is one of the main issues that premature babies face due to their small bodies being unable to shiver properly. The Ink Bean organization’s selfless donation of blankets this winter will surely help a number of premature babies in need.
Robinson is also aiming to crochet 100 pairs of socks for the mothers of the premature babies because it's important that mothers know they matter as well. With 40 blankets completed already, Robinson still has a way to go and is asking for donations of yarn and money to help Ink Bean reach this goal. The organization would also like to enlist the help of knitters and crocheters to also help out by making their own blankets, socks or slippers for the mothers and babies and sending them to the company as well. The Ink Bean organization is offering a number of blanket and sock patterns on their website for free. Robinson quotes “ I think I can make 100 blankets and socks but having the extra help would be great. I know it would mean a ton to the mothers to be given gifts like these. The truth is yarn isn't cheap and it takes time to make each blanket and each pair of socks. Even with all this difficulties I still strive to reach this goal before Christmas of this year. The CEO and founder is both passionate about writing as well as passionate about providing help to babies and mothers who truly need to feel loved.
