Donations are still going strong

We are still going strong with donations! We have collected over 600 blankets to pass out later this year for our event. We are scheduled to spread warmth in September. We will have more information and news about this event as we move closer to the date. Please check out our Facebook page for more!

Thank you for all those who have donated and supported us! We couldn’t do it without you!

Congratulations and Thank you

In 2016 we collected a lot of blankets for those in need. Today we are happy to report that we have collected 548 blankets and we are looking to keep that number growing. We could not do this without all of our donators.  Thank you for all your help!

Now we want to congratulate our founder, Ayden for his award tonight. Ayden was honored with a Certificate of Appreciation for doing a Good deed in the community. Ayden gave a short speech before accepting the award.

We also want to thank Rose for the donation money, as well as the 15 blankets donated tonight. We appreciate not only the recognition, but the donation to those in need. We can’t continue to spread warmth to those in need without you. Rose also let Ayden and his aunt Terri know that they will have more blankets to donate soon!

Again, we want to thank all those who have donated or want to join us in the 2017 volunteer hand out event. Please keep those donations coming in!

If you have blankets you would like to donate, please visit our contact page to get in touch as well as our Facebook page!

Tune in Tonight!

A special message from Ayden’s Aunt Terri.

Well, I am humbled. If anything Ayden and his desire and dream for his “project” has shown me is that the littlest gesture can make a huge impact and touch millions, literally. Tonight we (Ayden and I) had the privilege to meet Capt. David Williams and his wonderful wife Michelle. Again, the people Ayden and I have met, the tears we have witnessed and shared and the thank yous we get are nothing to the Thank yous we would like to share. My car is once again PACKED. Super Shout out to Capt. David Williams, his wife Michelle and American Airlines for your donation and making Aydens day with a genuine Chicago Cubs World Series Pennant from the office girls in Ohare. To the VP of American Airlines Ayden is thrilled with his genuine “Wings” something already in his treasure forever box. In today’s world it is Aydens heart and compassion to be the difference, to be human as he says “we are all just human” is what gives me hope for our tomorrow’s.

Sincerely, Ayden personal chauffer, event coordinator and luckiest Aunt EVER.



We have an announcement!

When The Ayden Project first started we were thrilled when people donated a few blankets to help us out. Each year that number grew and we couldn’t have been more excited. We gained some exposure this year with the help of a local news station WoodTV 8. Ayden was nervous about being on TV and sharing his story but he didn’t a fantastic job and got to meet several wonderful people handing out blankets in 2016. He learned a great deal and wanted to set a higher goal fro 2017.

You can find more about the event here.

We have reached our goal for 2017, 413 blankets so far! In only a few months we have reached it. This is truly amazing and we didn’t expect it to happen so soon! We would like to thanks everyone who donated for 2017 so far (last names have been omitted):

  • Mort and Jerry
  • Andrea
  • Sharon
  • Val
  • LT. Kraai
  • Capt DeWitt and Annette
  • Capt. David of American Airlines

We wouldn’t have been able to reach our goal so quickly without you. We are still of course accepting blankets. You can send us your donated blankets to the following:
