Photo BWThe blankets Donna left on Tuesday came from an Exmore quilter from the Eastern Shore Quilt Guild Virginia, from Pocomoke area quilters, from Project Linus Blanketeers in Palm Desert CA, Denver CO, and Merrill WI.
"Project Linus - Providing Security through blalnketsEach blanket is labeled with a Project Linus label showing our lovable namesake, Linus Van Pelt. We attach a hang tag identifying the maker of the blanket too."
I know by now these blankets have found homes and are providing warmth for each child wrapped in one.
And this is serious business! Donna reported that 5,000 blankets made by various chapters nationally were sent to the New York/New Jersey areas for children and teens.
In fact, just a few weeks ago Donna herself organized delivery for 600 blankets to the Somerset County area with more on the way!
If you can sew, knit, crochet, quilt or tie a know and are interested in joining a Project Linus Chapter go to Donna's blog. You really do need to see her photos of the beautiful blankets that have been made available to so many children. You also will enjoy her journey to Crisfield to help those in need. She a busy person with a really big heart....now if I can just get her to have someone make me a soft, snuggly blanket with pigs on like I saw at the bottom of that one bag....
