Our Project Linus Nevada County Chapter received this thank you from a local mother:

Dear Project Linus,

Magic, your quilt was MAGIC!

My daughter who has Down Syndrome and has very low vision, legally blind had to spend time in the ER tonight. Mind you she is not the most articulate with her words, yet was able to clearly ask for what she wanted last night.

The Nurse…What is your favorite color?
Green…

What is your favorite animal?
A Cow

Kim the nurse brought a beautiful quilt with black and white cows (perfect for her low vision), with green panels. On this same material was musical notes. My daughter is magic with her musical memory. She can tell which radio station is on by the songs. This was not serendipity, but a magic touch from above that she received what she asked for and had something that distracted her from the other moments occurring around her.

Your work and all the commitment of your team,  made my daughters stay in the ER a little less frightening!
Thank You,
