My son was a recipient of a blanket from Project Linus.  (from their website-)They provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.” 

With chapters in all 50 states, Project Linus continues to grow. Blankets are collected locally and distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug.

Thank you!

Doodlebug Manor  501c3 Cat Rescue & Adoption  Cheesy
We would greatly appreciate any crafting overflow donations to our rescue organization -  including :   Yarn, crochet patterns, sewing materials, stuffing, embroidery thread, etc ..

We make items for two purposes;   1. to donate to the cats/kittens at our local county high kill shelter ( toys, blankets, etc .. )   2. To take to our fundraisers and sell to raise the money for vetting and care of the pets.

We are small, and totally donation driven, and really enjoy making items for the kitties to use and enjoy!

Project Linus is a FANTASTIC organization!  I worked at a domestic violence organization and for 2 Children's Advocacy Centers, who deal exclusively with kids who have suffered sexual abuse, and these blankets go to those kids.  They REALLY like them and get super-excited; I've seen a 16 yr old boy almost start crying at the idea that we were gonna let him take one home with him and he could pick out whatever one he wanted.

Just wanted to put my two cents in!  They need blankets for all ages, both male and female, and different weights!

I love this group. They helped my adopted son get off the streets, get clean, and get in my home. I love them, and I love him. They put us together and it has been the biggest gift of my life. I have now dedicated a good sized part of my life and time to giving back to them.

They do a lot of outreach in the winter months. And do a lot of arts and crafts to keep the kids entertained at the shelter. So if you are cleaning out the craft room or knitting tons of hats....

Thanks, and blessings to you for this thread.

When I was pregnant we went to The pregnancy resource center. They gave us crocheted blankets, booties, mittens, etc. It was a godsend. I know that they are constantly in need of more items. Though I think they prefer finished items. But it would be heart warming to know the blanket you make could warm a less fortunate baby at night.
