Charity Volunteer

My story is just beginning. I contacted Project Linus after I saw your web page on charities. My sister gave birth to a preemie daughter in the 60's. She wasn't allowed to hold Ginger and she didn't get to take anything home to ease her way through the sorrow. Then my good friend Jule's son, less than one year old, died of SIDS. Babies need comfort and mothers need something to take home so their arms don't feel so empty. I just want people in the hardest place they will ever be in to know that someone out in the big wide wonderful world cares.

I am making the Diagonal Knitted Baby Blanket from Homespun. I have enough Homespun to make 2 more blankets. I only wish I could knit faster. The Central Ohio chapter needs blankets sized for teens. Teens feel adrift too and need reassurance that they are not alone.

Thank you for the opportunity to do something nice for someone who needs a hug. Bobi
