The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 39,000 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, Interact (for children of abused women receiving support), Hospice (for their Reflections program for grieving children and teens), Make a Wish Foundation, The Women's Center, Open Door Clinic, Children's Flight of Hope, and The Raleigh Rescue Mission.

Marley's Lovely Lemonade


Hi Susie,
My daughter, Marley, 7 years old, recently participated in Lemonade Day (lemonadeday.org) through the YMCA Afterschool program at her school. Through Lemonade Day kids get to learn how to run a business and see what goes into earning money. After paying back her 'loan' for supplies, Marley made about $60! She and I discussed giving part of her money to a charity. She decided that she wanted to split her profits with a charity that would help sick children. We searched online and found Project Linus. Marley really wants to give to a charity that is in Raleigh and so I was wondering if there is a way to donate to the Raleigh Chapter of Project Linus?
When Marley was born she was in the NICU for 4 days. She received a blanket. I don't know if it was from Project Linus, but it was a special connection that she made. She still has the blanket. 
Best,
Kortney
