Blankets Save Lives

I can already predict that one theme of my posts for Ooh La La will have to do with design and how it impacts making the world a better place. This blanket could not be a better example. The infant-mortality rate in Uganda is staggeringly high and yet so many of the deaths are completely avoidable. How to spread the word? By handing out this very informative blanket to new Ugandan mothers; that's how. Shanti Uganda, a non-profit, started distributing them about a month ago. How phenomenal is it when design is used not just for beauty but also to save lives? If that doesn't deserve an ooh la la, I don't know what does!
