Former patient returns to BSSF to donate blankets

Kristen Wright-Matthews was five months pregnant when she lost her baby in 2013.

Her son, C.J., was 5 years old and took the tragedy exceptionally hard. To help C.J. cope with the loss, Kristen and her husband decided to start a charitable project called Blankies 4 My Buddies.

Since then, 14-year-old C.J. and his little brother Kollin, 6, lead much of the charity’s work by delivering small tokens of comfort to children and families dealing with devastating situations, including illness, homelessness, grief and loss.

Blankies 4 My Buddies brought handmade blankets from donors and those he and other youth made through his #GiveLikeCJ blanket box project. It’s an extra dose of comfort for children facing challenges.

The family recently returned to Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital for the second year in a row do deliver 75 blankets and Copies of C.J.’s new book, “And Then There was One.”

“It is important for us to come home to Charleston because we started our family here,” Kristen Wright Matthews said. “We experienced the highest pinnacle of happiness with the birth of C.J. and our lowest moment when we lost our daughter.”

The nonprofit has received national attention from multiple media outlets. (See stories here and here.)

C.J. Matthews was recently named a 2022 Prudential Emerging Visionary, recognizing young people ages 14-18 whose fresh perspectives and innovative solutions address the pressing financial and societal challenges in their communities. The program is an evolution of the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, the country’s most extensive youth recognition program, which for 26 years honored more than 150,000 outstanding youth volunteers.
