1,806,791 Blankets and Counting – Touch a Child’s Life Through Project Linus
Lazies, Project Linus has donated 1,806,791 blankets as of the end of 2006. That number is sure to go up this Saturday for Project Linus’ eighth annual ‘Make a Blanket Day’ event.
Here’s more info from the Project Linus website:
– Join us for Make a Blanket Day (MABD) 2007! Each year, participating chapter coordinators around the country band together to make blankets and spread the Project Linus word. Some may have blanket making events, open houses, collection sites, etc. Please contact your local chapter for more information about local activities. Due to limited resources, some chapters may not be participating.

They accept all styles of blankets are welcome, including quilts, tied comforters, fleece blankets, crocheted or knitted afghans, and receiving blankets in child-friendly colors.
