Project Linus: The Reason We Do This

Leave a comment

From a grateful parent:

I just wanted to say thank you.

3 years ago this month my son, Nolan, was born and rushed into the NICU. Although we knew this would happen ahead of time and the staff at the hospital were amazing, this was an extremely difficult time.

One morning we went to visit Nolan to find a basket on the window bench of his room. Someone had learned that Nolan had a 4 year old sister and gave her a basket from her little brother.  The basket had some coloring supplies, 2 teddy bears (one green the other white), and a blanket with a tag that said Project Linus. Katie chose to give the white bear to Nolan to go to Heaven with and to this day says the green one was given to her by her brother.

For about the first 2 years Katie slept with her “Nolan Blanket” every night and cuddled with it every time she was missing him. She truly believes that he asked someone to make it for him special to give to his big sissy. It doesn’t matter that he never made a sound, that is what we told her and because she was so young and she loves her Nolan Blanket so much, she believes it without question.

Although the Nolan Blanket is now folded safe in the top of the closet and she doesn’t depend on it as she used to, she still asks for it to be taken down every once in a while (3 years later) because it makes her feel close to the brother she barely got to know, it still brings her comfort and love.

Something as simple and small as a basket with a blanket in it made a big difference in my life but it made a HUGE difference in my daughter’s life. So thank you for what you do.

Sincerely,

Grateful Parent

We received the following thank you via email over the weekend:

“I wanted to thank you and anyone else who helps you with the quilts you make for the hospital. My 2 year old was in the ER last night and had to get stitches in her face. She was pretty traumatized. The nurses brought her a beautiful quilt that was so filled with love, it really calmed her down. She has spent today carrying it around the house saying it’s her “cozy”.

Please know how much this kind gesture touched this mama’s heart.

Warmest Regards”

To the dedicated volunteers supporting our Chapter, this thank you is for you!  Thank you for all you do!

Nevada County Project Linus Chapter Turns 10!

Leave a comment

March 2nd, 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of our Project Linus Nevada County Chapter!  These ten years have flown by, but there have been so many gratifying adventures and treasured friendships developed along the way.  We’re also on target this year to reach another milestone in blankets donated to Nevada County children since we opened our doors in 2005!  I am so very, very grateful for all the wonderful Blanketeers who faithfully support the Chapter and help us reach these goals.  None of this could have happened without you!

Thank you all for your support of our Chapter and for helping us provide a Community hug to children in need.
