I was completely moved, when I found the group “Trøstemus Danmark” (Comfort Mouse Denmark) on facebook. It’s a voluntary group, that delivers crocheted, sewn and knitted comfort animals to hospitals throughout Denmark, so children and others can have a little comfort animal to hug, when it’s a scary experience.
It’s just so heart warming a group, and such a good initiative! It’s a large network with several thousand members who help with technique and inspiration. And then there are a number of touching posts from happy children, who have enjoyed the comfort mice and who play with them several years after.
There is a huge interest in them from nurses, doctors and other health professionals around the country, because it is such a powerful tool in their work, so if you want to help, then hurry into the group and read more! Every little animal counts 🙂
About the group
The group consists of ambassadors, who collect the Comfort Mice from all the volunteers around the country. They ensure that all safety rules are observed, give the mice a trip to the spa (wash at 60 degrees celsius) and pack them in small bags. Then they are safely handed over, and all of their comfort and care can be passed on.
I have, in collaboration with “Trøstemus Danmark”, been allowed to come up with this design, so it’s easier for more people to join the network 🙂
