THANK YOU Coastal Virginia Magazine Publisher Randy Thompson, Editor and Chief Melissa Stewart, Dave Uhrin Creative Director, Chris Conway Videographer, and everyone who voted for Blankets for the Homeless in the 2014 Giving Back Awards.

Mariah Smith was born and abandoned on Christmas Eve 21 years ago, from Homeless to Helper Mariah is the founder of a rapidly growing Homeless ministry. Mariah started this organization in October 2011 when she was 17 and has already distributed over 110,000 blankets and lunches to people living on the streets, as well as coats, hats, gloves, clothes, shoes, backpacks, tents, toiletries and anything else they need she always finds a way to get it for them. Mariah has numerous speaking engagements at schools, businesses, organizations, and every Sunday she speaks at a different church encouraging THOUSANDS to join her on her mission to help as many people as she can. Five nights a week Mariah distributes 50 blankets and lunches along with all the other desperately needed items to people living on the streets not fortunate enough to get into shelters.
Mariah's backpack drive was a huge success with over one thousand back packs donated. Thank you to everyone who continues to support Mariah and her mission to help the Homeless. Your kindness and support is a BLESSING♥ "Divide your bread with the hungry, bring the homeless into the house, when you see the naked, cover him, and do not divert your eyes from your own flesh." Isaiah 58:7
They call her "Blanket Girl"!
Thank you to EVERYONE who supports Mariah in so many ways. From the people who invite her to speak at schools, businesses, churches and organizations who then do donation drives for blankets, clothing, tents, walking shoes, back packs, and everything else needed by the homeless, to individuals who help in any way that they can. YOU ARE ALL BLESSINGS!! We can not do what we do without your caring, giving hearts♥
