Project Linus

Project Linus logo

Project Linus is a non-profit organization, dedicated to "Providing Security Through Blankets," for ill or traumatized children and teens. Inspired by a picture of a three-year-old cancer patient holding her security blanket, Project Linus was begun in 1995 by Karen Loucks. Nationally, Project Linus has donated more than 3,800,296 handmade blankets to help comfort children in need in hospitals, shelters, and hospices. Project Linus has 371 chapters in the United States. Project Linus was named after the adorable security blanket toting character from the Peanuts comic strip.
The Project Linus national website lists chapters in your area and has a great listing of patterns for you to use.
