We Need Your Help Making Things - Donating Your Help and/or Supplies

            Consider making and donating your handmade blankets and/or supplies to your local “Project Linus” chapter.  I am a Project Linus Coordinator for my area and have enjoyed working with the people who donate blankets “Blanketeers (blanket makers)” and the hospitals that receive those blankets and give them out to the children ages 0-18 who are hospitalized.  Many of the children are traumatized, seriously ill, injured, or terminally ill.  The children and their families are comforted by this gift of love and generosity from people who they will never meet.  Some of the blankets are sent to others going through tragic times around the USA and other Countries such as the recent “Haiti” disaster.
            For more information you can go to the Project Linus National Headquarters website http://www.projectlinus.org/ if you go to Chapter Listings you can see which one is closest to you.  My site is http://www.orgsites.com/wi/projectlinus/  Feel free to contact me through my site for more information.  Thank you from Northwestern Wisconsin, Debbie   PS I love the SWAPS though Yarn Lover’s Room; that is how I first learned of Project Linus….

My daughters husbands grandmother lives in San Diego and is looking for knitters to make premie caps for one of the hospitals there. I offered to help but they are looking for at least 1,000 per month and there is no way I can make so many. The other day I made three and this is between my own knitting projects. What is your suggestion? Maybe people can make them and send them to me. I can em you directions for them if you like. Just let me know. Thanks Sharon East Brunswick, NJ SWohlstett@aol.com

Hi, My name is Lisa Sugarman. I started making chemo caps for adults in honor of my Mom beating breast cancer last year. I would also like to make hats and booties for preemies and infants in the NICU, which I don't need patterns for, but I decided I wanted to start crocheting chemo caps for kids of all ages that are going through chemotherapy. I am having the hardest time trying to figure out how big to make for each age of the child. I've been using a simple patterns that I used when I was involved making caps for the soldiers on the Ship's Project. (if You haven't been to that site it's-I believe-under www.theshipsproject@yahooo.com ). It's very simple and I'm pretty sure I just need to make some minor adjustments, but don't have any kid's or friend's with kid's and don't really know how big or small to make them. I want to donate the children's caps to the All Children's Hospital, here in St. Petersburg, FL, then I believe they said whatever they have left over, they donate to the Ronald McDonald's house and the Make a Wish Foundation and a special camp they send the children to, to try to have some fun while all this is going on.  If You could help me out, I will be indebted to You. I just want to help those in need.
