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.

Coming Soon - MABD 2010

Save the date! This year's Make A Blanket Day will be on Saturday, February 27. Join us in Venture Hall at the IMAX Theater in downtown Raleigh from 10:00 - 3:00. Have fun, meet new friends, and make a blanket to comfort a child in need. Want to help? Contact Deanna.

Over 160 blankets were finished, tagged, and bagged at last year's Make A Blanket Day, and many more were started. It was a huge success, and a great time was had by all!
