We received this via e-mail from a grateful parent:

My daughter broke her arm on the playground at school. She was fortunate enough to receive one of your charming blankets at Tahoe Forest Hospital in Truckee CA. This blanket is beautiful, and we keep it as a keepsake. We appreciate your loving kindness.

Thank you to the Blanketeers of the Project Linus Nevada County Chapter!   You are appreciated!

A Little Friday Inspiration

Leave a comment

Our Chapter delivered blankets to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital ER this morning. As I walking through with 3 very large bags of blankets slung over my shoulders, a staff member called out, “More blankets? Thank you! We love the blankets. They are the BEST blankets!”.  I thanked him and continued through the area as a wave of “thank you!” sounded from all around the ER.

We also received this note from Project Linus National Headquarters, sent in by a parent:

This organization meant the world to me when my 20 month old was hospitalized for 4 days. We rushed him to the ER not thinking to grab anything on our way out the door. Once at the hospital I remember thinking I don’t have any of the things that will comfort him when he wakes up. Luckily the nurses immediately put one of these blankets on him and it made me feel like he had something to comfort him through an awful time. Thank you so much for this wonderful cause.  It means the world to parents everywhere.

A good way to start the St. Patrick’s Day weekend!  Thank you Blanketeers!

We received an e-mail with a photo and note.  I believe this blanket was donated via the Tall Pines Group.  Thank you, Blanketeers, for supporting our Nevada County Chapter and the children we serve!

“This is (our son), he is 7. We appreciate your gift.”

We received this via e-mail yesterday from a grateful Mom:

My 5-year-old daughter was taken to the ER at Tahoe Forest Hospital over the holidays. She had what, at first, seemed a benign accident playing in the snow with her cousins. After an hour or two of persistent symptoms, we decided to take her to the hospital, where we learned she had a fractured skull. It was very unexpected, very frightening … and we were completely unprepared for what was escalating to be an airlift situation to another hospital. When we explained we wouldn’t be going back to the cabin that night, my daughter was very upset that she didn’t have her favorite blanket with her for the night. The nurse overheard, and within minutes came back with a Project Linus blanket. This gift and this gesture calmed her immediately and made her feel very special.

Thank you so much for your work and dedication to helping children (and their families) during a very vulnerable and scary time. It may not seem like much, but this blanket that was made with love and care was exactly what my little girl needed at that moment in time.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
A big thank you to all the generous people in our Community who support us and allow us to provide blankets to children in need!

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,

(name withheld for privacy)

If you’re a Blanketeer for our Chapter and recognize this blanket as yours, please give yourself a pat on the back!  You made a difference in a child’s life!  To all of our Blanketeers—thank you for your work and support!
