An important part of the Project Linus mission is to offer service opportunities for individuals to be able to “give back” to those in need
of comfort. We have developed our Kids Helping Kids program for classrooms, scout troops, youth groups and birthday celebrations. Corporate groups, service leagues and community groups that participate in our KHK program experience a community service project that becomes a favorite annual activity for their group.
HOW CAN YOUR GROUP PARTICIPATE?
Participants can decorate squares of bleached muslin with permanent fabric markers. Our volunteers or a quilter in your group can create the quilts incorporating the decorated squares. A simple envelope quilt pattern is available, but any pattern is acceptable. Another very popular activity is creating single-layer, tied fleece blankets. The recipients of these Project Linus blankets love these soft, cuddly blankets.
KIDS HELPING KIDS AND
A representative from our chapter or someone from your group can tell your group about Project Linus. The presentation will include: a short history of Project Linus, a discussion of how security blankets make you feel, stories of blanket recipients and an explanation of ideas of decorating the muslin squares or how to create a fleece blanket. We have developed guidelines which will explain the Kids Helping Kids – Corporate/Community program presentations and blanket specifications. Sample blankets of both types of blankets are available to show your group. Each participant will receive a Project Linus brochure which helps “spread the mission” about our chapter. Scout troops often purchase our patches which are pictured here. They can be ordered from Judi at 847-498-3987.
