Project Linus

I am the chapter Coordinator for Project Linus in the Carroll/Fairfield co. Ohio area. We are a 100% non-profit organization that donates handmade machine washable blankets to seriously ill and traumitized kids in the community. All of our donations stay locally and go to the community hospital, children services and emergancy shelters.

I love to quilt and crochet. I had some unwanted fabric on Ebay. The lady who purchased the fabric from me, told me that she was a "blanketeer" for her local project and refered me to the website. After reading letters from families, nurses and others on how they have been touched by this awsome movement, I decided I had to join in with this wonderful bunch of ladies.

My chapter is fairly new to the PL family, but to date PL has dontated 944,842 nationally. I hope that with some expsosure of our chapter, we will soon be cranking out those blankets. To this date we have not had any local news coverage. I hope that will soon change.

I like the Lion brand pound of love. The colors are great for a project such as this, and it is a great bargin!

I would suggest to anyone looking to find a worthy cause to donate your time, or your precious handmade items to donate to your local PL chapter. Just knowing what joy we bring to these kids in such need of love and tenderness is worth more than anything.
