Happy Blankie began when, then 7 year old, David Holdridge decided he wanted to combine his little sister's two favorite toys together. David's sister loved her stuffed animals and her blankies. With the help of his family, Happy Blankie was soon born. The first was a pig, Giggle the Pig was a pig with a smile from cheek to cheek. Soon the dog, bear, and frog followed.
David wanted to make the whole world smile through his Happy Blankie's. So Emily, his mom, suggested they give away a blankie to a child in need everytime one was sold. This became the "One to love-One to give" program. Every time a child receives a Happy Blankie they can decide where they want the other blankie to go. David and his family are making the children smile-two blankies at a time all over the world :)
