The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 40,000 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 NICU, Safe Space (for children of abused women receiving support), Hospice (for their Reflections program for grieving children and teens), Make a Wish Foundation, the children at Salvation Army, Children's Flight of Hope, and Wake County Social Services.

Cheery afghan

Good morning! Here's a cheerful afghan made by Laura to inspire you this morning. It's cheerful, bright colors will be great for young or older kids, and the tight weave guarantees IVs won't get caught in the pattern.  Hope you enjoy its happy colors!

A big thank you to a blanketeer, and a reminder 
that you all make a difference!

Last week, my four year old son woke up in the middle of the night with a swollen, infected finger that was not there at bedtime. We rushed him to the Wake Med North ER and before they cut into his finger to drain the infection, they gave him one of your wonderful blankets to cuddle with. Thank you all so much for thinking of those kids who are scared and may not have their favorite stuffed animal or blanket with them at such a frightening time. He was so happy to wrap himself up in a special blanket and if definitely helped calm his nerves. Your hard work and kindness is truly appreciated! Thank you all so much!Thank you to all your volunteers, what a great way to do something special for those in a time of need!
