Project Linus Results

I do not know if this will be of interest, but I am a school nurse in Albuquerque, NM.

I had a first grade child involved in an abuse case. That evening I saw a fellow, retired school nurse who was involved in the Linus blanket project.

She had some extra blankets for us if we needed any. I requested and received a pink one. I gave it to the child the next day (this was also the day that the Children's Services case worker came to investigate the incident.) I gave it to her in a bag so she could take it home, but as soon as she got back to class she wrapped herself in it and it was around her all day.

I wanted you to be able to share how these small donations can really make a difference in a child's life.
