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.

And the winner is...Project Linus!

Thanks to all of you who submitted craft entries and voted in Joann's "Craft for a Cause" contest.  The votes have been tallied, and Project Linus is the $50,000 grand prize winner!  
Words fail to adequately express our thanks to the countless supporters and volunteers who voted for Project Linus at JoAnn's Craft for a Cause Contest. And to JoAnn's, for their generosity, I hardly know how to begin. This is the largest donation we have ever received at one time, and will make an enormous impact on our organization. Thanks to you all. Thank you, thank you, thanks to you.
