Our personal mission, As Charles Schulz’s Linus character from the PEANUTS® comic strip was comforted by his blanket, Project Linus strives to do the same and more for children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. The blankets our nearly 400 chapter coordinators collect from thousands of “blanketeers” (volunteers) across the United States and then distributed to these children provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort.
We are always taking in donations of yarn and blankets for these kids, if you can help in any way, please contact us.
From Pamela Hasche, an amazing and wonderful woman, "in June 2004, I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer, a fast-metastasizing and uncommon form of cancer. Yes, it was a shock, but I was determined to beat the rather dismal statistics. With the support of family & a strong network of friends, I emerged from 9 months of chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation a cancer-free woman. I didn’t consider myself lucky, nor did I bemoan my situation when I was diagnosed. Who I am after the treatment is the same as who I was before, but I’m a lot more appreciative of life and possess a deeper capacity to love and give back to others."
We believe in maintaining the traditions of U.S. textile production history.
We work with a number of U.S. producers, some of which are small family owned businesses, some are long term old school manufacturers.
