DALLAS, Nov. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of Hallmark Channel's "Countdown to Christmas," the Channel and Warm Up America! have teamed up for the "Stitched with Love" initiative to create beautiful cozy blankets to donate to women's domestic violence shelters. The Channel has also donated $25,000 to the Foundation to support the charity. 

Renowned yarn-bomber and crochet artist London Kaye designed the 7" x 9" blanket square pattern and instructions inspired by Hallmark Channel's logo and their "Countdown to Christmas" color palette.

Anyone can crochet or knit a square and donate it to Warm Up America! Knitting and crochet aficionados are invited to visit Hallmark Channel's landing page HERE to download a template from which they can make their own square and then follow the instructions to ship to Warm Up America! Each section will be connected locally to complete full-size blankets and donated to various women's domestic violence shelters in Georgia, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Texas.

Those who do not knit or crochet can visit the Warm Up America! website to make a monetary donation.

"We are thankful for the Hallmark Channel's generous donation and support for the Foundation," said Jenny Bessonette, Executive Director of Warm Up America! Foundation and Craft Yarn Council.

"We are proud to work with Warm Up America! Foundation and the talented London Kaye to help provide much-needed warm blankets for women and their families in domestic shelters this holiday season," said Lara Richardson, Chief Marketing Officer, Hallmark Media.
