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.

Our chapter received this sweet note from a mom - many thanks to all our blanketmakers who make so many children happy!

I wanted to email a big thank you for being the Raleigh coordinator for Raleigh Project Linus! My twin girls were in Raleigh Rex Special Care Nursery for a little while in July/August 2015 and Project Linus provided each of them of cute fleece blanket with sweet crochet edging.  Of all the blankets they have, these are their absolute favorites and we are pretty sure they wouldn't be able to live without them.  They are extremely attached:) Attached is a picture of them this weekend enjoying their 'Dahs' while sitting on the couch. Thank you again and your effort is much appreciated!
