Project Linus

I have been involved in Project Linus that makes blankets for sick, abused, injured or mourning children.

I got involved through my best friend who works with the chapter in Carroll County. I have been doing this for almost 3 years and so fat I have completed 84 crocheted blankets.

Our name is usually attached to the blankets before they are delivered. The many thank-you notes that I have received is my inspiration to keep crocheting. Parents write thank yous but some of the hand drawn ones from little abused children are heart-wrenching.

Sometimes their blanket is the only thing they have that belongs to them when they are removed from an abused situation. The blankets are given to them by a social worker or other responsible adult.

Each time I open them I sit there with tears running down my face and vow to keep making blankets as long as my fingers hold out.

It is only a llittle thing but I feel so fortunate that I can bring s little happiness into someones life.
