How Can You Help?

THANK YOU Blanketeers!  Over 100 blankets have been received in the past month and all have been distributed to children in need in our community. 


The 2021 Project Linus Mystery Quilt Contest voting is now open!

We have 49 BEAUTIFUL "Lucy's Love Notes" quilts on our website just waiting for your vote! Votes are $1.00 each (minimum $10) and you can vote as often and for as many quilts as you like. Our goal is $22,000.00 (just above our last year's total of $21,942.00) and I KNOW we can do it with your help. It would be even better if we could reach $25,000 in honor of Project Linus's 25th birthday!

The top winners will receive some great prizes so I know every person with an entry would be most grateful for your vote(s).  Please go to www.projectlinus.org and click on the "Vote Here" link at the top of the page. This will take you to the ballot where you can view and vote for any quilt(s) you like.

Thank you to each of you for supporting Project Linus whether it be through your donation of blankets, your monetary donations or your participation in each year's challenge. It is because of you that we have been able to "blanket" over 8,000,000 children during the past 25 years.

***************************************
Launched in December 1995, Project Linus has grown to over 280 chapters nationwide and donated over 8 million blankets to children across the country.  The Iredell County Chapter of Project Linus (also serving Alexander, Wilkes, Yadkin, Davie and Davidson counties) was established in early 2017 to provide blankets to traumatized children in our communities and to provide a fun, rewarding service opportunity for people who enjoy making life a bit more cheerful for sick, homeless, or abused children.  Since launching in March 2017, we have delivered over 900 blankets to children in need in our community.  Thank you Blanketeers!

Project Linus was named after the adorable security blanket-toting character from the Peanuts(c) comic strip.  Creator Charles Schultz was aware of our efforts and was delighted to have Linus inspire blanket makers to help comfort children in need.  "The best kind of sleep under heaven above, is under a blanket handmade with love."

You can help by becoming a blanketeer, donating materials to make blankets, hosting a Make A Blanket Day, or making a monetary tax-deductible donation.  Are you ready to "Get Involved" ?
