The Gallery Collection is pleased to announce a donation of 400 holiday cards and 400 birthday cards to Project Linus. Project Linus donates handmade security blankets to children in trauma, including children in hospitals, shelters, foster kids, children of military soldiers who are either deployed or fallen, or any other situation you can imagine.

Project Linus

By the end of 2013 Project Linus will have donated over 5 million blankets to children in need. Project Linus accepts handmade blankets of any style or size. Of course, financial donations are always needed. Most of chapters also accept donations of materials to make blankets.

They intend to use their cards by sending them to their very hardworking volunteer coordinators for Christmas. Project Linus has not been able to do this for a very long time. Also, they send birthday cards to each volunteer on their birthdays.

I had never heard of Project Linus before but the name is so appropriate. What a great charity.
I am always up for any charity that helps children.

Any charity that helps children is a great charity in my book. It’s great that the Gallery Collection honors the people involved in helping this charity! It’s nice to know when you are appreciated!

What a unique and wonderful charity. Simple comforts such as blankets often get overlooked in this day and age, much like the simple kind act of sending a Christmas or birthday card often gets overlooked. It is great that the Gallery Collection finds ways of contributing to great charities such as Project Linus that are not as well known as others.

Project Linus is a very worthy cause! The children who receive these acts of kindness will never forget that someone genuinely cared about them in times of distress. I also commend companies like the Gallery Collection for recognizing the efforts of the volunteers!
