Bless the parents who send in notes to let us know how much it means to their children to receive a Project Linus blanket!  Here’s an e-mail, with photo, that we received Saturday evening.  Note that names and faces have been removed out of respect for their privacy:

Dear Susan and Project Linus,

We just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the beautiful blanket that (our son) was presented with in the emergency room at Tahoe Forest Hospital. That was quite a scary time for him and all of us, especially because the day before (our son) went to the ER, his dad had had an accident, and was also in the hospital. The blanket made (our son) feel special and comforted. He has been in the hospital for five days and the blanket has kept him company the whole time. (Our son) is doing well now, and will probably leave the hospital in the next day or so. He is just six years old and has a twin brother, so the blanket will be loved for years to come.

It is clear that this is such a labor of love for you, making blankets for children that you don’t even know. Please know how much we appreciate you, and we are sending you our love.


(Grateful Mom)


Project Linus

This is a thank you to all of our Blanketeers for doing what you do!
