Have you ever made a blanket to donate to charity, or perhaps have some blankets you’ve made with no one to give them to?
Please consider donating them to Project Linus – they are a wonderful nonprofit that provides comforting, handmade blankets to children that are sick or in crisis.
I’ve made blankets for Project Linus off and on for a few years now, and I try to attend a local meeting at least once a year to help sort, label and package the donated blankets so they are ready to be sent out to the public. The wonderful volunteers there have always been so cheerful and determined to continue to provide blankets for the thousands of requests sent in each year. They swap patterns, show off finished projects, and work together to help children in need in a very quiet, anonymous way.
I’ve come to appreciate at another level after a friend’s child recently was diagnosed with leukemia. At one of her first stays in the children’s hospital, she was provided a blanket with a Project Linus label.
