'Giving Back' Through Craft

by Nicole of Designs by Lulubelle

For quite a while, I've been trying to think of ways to "give back". I've been very fortunate in my life and would like to do my part no matter how small it may be. As a nurse, my favorite and most touching moments were always with my pediatric patients. I was always touched by them and their stories. Looking at my own children now, I realize how lucky I am.

I'd heard about Project Linus several years ago before I had picked up sewing again. I recently contacted one of the local chapters and am planning on getting more involved.

One of Project Linus' missions is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer "blanketeers."

As of December 2007, 2,293,340 blankets have been donated.
