Project Linus

13 Oct

On the Big Island here, there is a Project Linus group that collects blankets for children in need of comfort.

*

I love to make blankets and so I’ve been donating them. I didn’t think to take a picture of them but they are humbly made with cute fabrics.

*

There is a fabric store, Discount Fabric Warehouse, that supports the project in many ways.

*

Yesterday when I left off blankets, they gave me coupons for $5 off my next purchases at their store.

*

Is this a great deal or what?

*

Ah joy, I got some Hawaiian fabrics to bring on my trip and give as gift to a fashion designer I am going to visit.

*

A blessing of comfort to each of you.

    It all works so well when everyone does their bit, how nice of you, and of them. Some unlucky kids, will be thrilled to get something for a change.

      Yes, I hope so Claire. 😄 I made all but one of them in a size for teens and older kids because there are less available for them.

    That is a splendid idea! Makes me wish I could sew. Charity in and of itself does not need a reward but that makes it all the sweeter when we get one because we really didn’t expect it and recognition is always nice. Best of the day!

      That’s true Cherylann.

    I’ve seen the Linus project on bulletin boards around here too. So many charity ideas out there…so little time!
