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.

Flowers and Fairies

Cicely Mary Barker, an early 20th century artist, created the Flower Fairies series of books and illustrations.  Patty M., one of our Project Linus blanketeers, created these precious Flower Fairy quilts which will surely bring cheer and comfort to three special little girls.
