The Project Linus Chapter in Raleigh, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 32,000 blankets have been delivered to many local groups and agencies that help seriously ill or traumatized children who need a HUG from a blanket including: Wake Med Hospitals, Rex Hospital, Duke Hospital, Interact (for children of abused women receiving support), Hospice (for their Reflections program for grieving children and teens), Make a Wish Foundation, The Women's Center, Open Door Clinic, Children's Flight of Hope, and The Raleigh Rescue Mission.

A follow up email received, with pictures:
I wanted to say THANK YOU for the blankets. We are putting them in the Baby Bundles and our new parents love them.
I have attached a few photos of the blankets and the outfits we matched with them.
Thank you again for all you do.

I received this email from the coordinator of youth programs from the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. Thank you all for making such generosity possible.

Hi Susie - thank you so much for your efforts to provide our kiddos with blankets for our National Military Suicide Seminar and Good Grief Camp.  Every child received a blanket or quilt, thereby providing each one of them a physical reminder that they have not been forgotten.  We had almost 150 kids attend, each one of them having lost a loved one who had served in the military to suicide.  Your hard work and efforts were very appreciated!

Please extend our gratitude to your blanketeers as well!  Here are a few pictures from one of our younger groups during relaxation, also known as nap time.

With sincere gratitude and appreciation.

Dear Project Linus of Wake County,
Thank you for your donation of blankets to the Sandhills/Moore County, NC chapter. The blankets will be donated to TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors), specifically for military children who have lost a parent. During the year, TAPS holds Good Grief Camps for surviving children across the country. These blankets will be used to support the Good Grief Camp in Colorado Springs, CO and Columbia, SC. There are usually 135 to 165 children attending each camp. Sometimes the Project Linus chapter coordinators in the Good Grief Camp area can provide the number of blankets needed. Without the help of Project Linus Wake County, the children would not receive the special comfort and support found only in a Project Linus blanket. 

Many blessings and many thanks,
Pat Weber, PL Chapter Coordinator
Sandhills/Moore County, NC
