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.

More beautiful blankets

You don't have to be a grown-up to be a Project Linus "blanketeer".  This cuddly fleece blanket was made by Mrs. Rigsbee and Mrs. Goodwin's class at Leesville Road Middle School.

These lovely blankets will surely brighten a child's day.  Handmade blankets wrap a child in love and comfort. Thank you blanket-makers, young, old, and in-between!
