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.

Cary Blanketeers update
Six years and 3100 blankets! The Cary Blanketeers recently celebrated their birthday at the Super Asian Buffet. The theme of the party was “Blanket the World” and members were challenged to make a special international blanket. China, England, Holland, South Africa and Japan were just a few of the countries represented. More photos can be found on the group’s Facebook page. Want to join them?
