The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 42,000 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.

Cary Blanketeers - Come join us!

The Cary Blanketeers celebrated their 8th birthday and 4000 blankets with a party this week. Everyone was challenged to make a special birthday blanket and this year’s theme was “It’s a Jungle Out There.” After brunch and a game of ‘Never-Have-I-Ever” (crochet edition), each member presented her blanket. For additional photos of some amazing blankets, see the group’s Facebook page.

The Cary Blanketeers meet twice a month at Macedonia Methodist Church near Joann’s on Walnut Street in Cary. New members are always welcome.

The 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month

Here's a great way to start the weekend - with the cheerful preschoolers from St. Raphael's making quilts for Project Linus! They've been making Project Linus quilts for years - one child I saw in preschool there years ago is now studying and playing football at NC State!

THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who helped make our annual Make a Blanket Day on April 21 such a success.
On that one day, we delivered 680 blankets to Wake Med, Wake Med North, Social Services Adoption Forum and tornado victims in Greensboro. We made 324 blankets for deliveries in the next few weeks. Our raffle raised over $500, which will be used to buy fleece, yarn and fabric for more blankets!
Special thanks go to Deanna Winick, Janet Rapp, Diane Wallace and XFinigen Media for all of their hard work before and during the event. Here is a special video highlighting Janet:

Thank you all for making our community such a caring place for children,
