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.

Happy Thanksgiving!! Children’s Flight of Hope is so thankful for Project Linus’s support of our clients. Below are two notes I received recently.

“The blanket really came in handy on the plane, when sitting in a chair etc.  It was great!” – Holly’s Mom (She recently traveled to New York for Scoliosis surgery)

“Oh my goodness! We got the best care package in the mail today! 
We are so grateful for the flights and then you top it off by sending this!!!
The blanket is beautiful and perfect for the flight. Ben loves the teddy pilot too! You made us so happy today. Thank you for sending us love!” Benjamin’s mom (Benjamin is six and travels to Chicago for Epilepsy)
Special thanks to Melissa and Kim for their care and attention to these blankets!
