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 here's another note, from  the Armed Services YMCA:

I wanted to say thank you for the baby bundle i received 2 weeks ago at Womack. I had no idea this was done for new mom's and it was a wonderful surprise after a stressful delivery.  It actually was the only gift we received from anyone, including friends and family.  smile emoticon My son is very small and the newborn clothing was perfect and actually the outfit he wore home from the hospital! There was a BEAUTIFUL crocheted blanket that i will keep to hand down to him someday. You truly made what was to be a joyous experience that ended up not going as planned, back in to a wonderful experience. I'm not sure how long you've been doing this but i don't recall getting one when my daughter was born 3 years ago which added to the surprise when your staff showed up! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart! Blessings to everyone, especially the hands that crafted the blanket and put their love in making up the bags and their time to deliver them. Merry Christmas
