Project Linus began in 1995 as the brainchild of Karen Loucks, who saw an article in Parade Magazine titled Joy to the World. It was written by Pulitzer Prize winning photo-journalist, Eddie Adams. Part of the article featured a little girl who was comforted through her chemotherapy treatment by her blanket. Karen and some of her friends began making blankets and donating them to children at the local cancer care center. Since then, Project Linus has given over 2,000,000 blankets to children worldwide in a variety of stressful situations. Our name is taken from the Peanuts character that is never without a blanket of his own. Charles Schulz knew about Project Linus and approved the use of his lovable character in the cause of providing security blankets for needy children. As a result of Mr. Schulz' support, Project Linus blanketeers sew an identifying fabric tag with the Linus character on it to each blanket before delivery to the children.
* Project Linus is a non-profit volunteer organization with a two-fold mission.
* First, it is our mission to 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."
* Second, it is our mission to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.

Would you like to make a monetary donation to our chapter?
The average cost of making a blanket is $50. While some volunteers provide their own supplies, many have limited resources so we want to be able to provide supplies whenever necessary.
Funds are used for blanket making materials, postage, event supplies, and other chapter related events.
Can we count on your help in 2014?
We have raised over $300 just since the Fall 2013!
