Sackcloth & Ashes creates and sells beautiful blankets—and donates another blanket for every purchase to a homeless shelter. The Note Assistance Program is proud to be part of their Blanket the United States campaign with a goal of donating one million blankets nationwide by 2024.

On The Inspiration Behind The Brand:
In 2014, Bob’s mom was living on the streets. This completely changed the way he viewed the homeless as she is the hardest working woman that he knows. Bob was inspired to call his local shelters to ask what they needed—they all requested blankets. That’s when he came up with the idea of Sackcloth & Ashes. For every blanket purchased from their company, they will donate a second blanket to a local homeless shelter.
On The Partnership With The Note Assistance Program:
On June 1st, 2018 Sackcloth & Ashes launched its first major campaign called Blanket the United States. Their goal is to donate 1 million blankets to shelters by 2024. The Note Assistance Program has committed to donating 500 blankets in 2021 to contribute towards this goal.
About the Blankets:
The fabric is made in Italy. Once the fabric is shipped over to their facility, they have a team of refugees that helps them with their production. They cut and sew to get the products ready to be shipped out to their customers. The blankets themselves are made of 100% recycled materials and are created with eco-friendly dye. They are a wool blend, and soft to the touch.
What Is the Goal Of The NAP Program?
Our goal is to help five thousand families in five years (5k5y) reach their financial and time freedom goals while creating generational wealth through mortgage note investing.
