What a great day we had at the 2017 Make a Blanket Day. Over 100 of us gathered to make over 350 blankets. We raffled prizes to raise over $350 to buy more fleece and yarn to make blankets for the children.
Many, many thanks to all of you
and special thanks to
Deanna Winick for organizing all of us!
Hope to see you all next year!

Dear Project Linus,
I have been carrying around the little blue tag from one of your Project Linus blankets for over a year because I didn’t want to forget to send a quick thank you at some point! In any event, sorry for the delay, but I just wanted to let you know how much your kindness meant to my son and to me.
He was 10 years old at the time, and we were in town for my stepmom’s funeral unfortunately. He was playing with cousins that night and ended up falling out of a tree, and so we ended up at WakeMed with him having a broken wrist. It was quite painful for him, and he also was nervous because we learned that he was going to have to be transported by ambulance to a different hospital so that a pediatric specialist could set his wrist. Since my husband was with my other son, he was going to have to ride in the ambulance by himself while I followed in my car. As you can imagine, he was anxious but trying to be tough. One of the nurses in the emergency room brought him one of your fleece blankets, and it was so comforting and meant so much to him. He still uses that blanket to this day.
I just wanted you to know that your thoughtfulness toward those whom you have never met is very much appreciated. Your efforts are a blessing to those who are in need. Thank you!
