Project Linus Blanket Drive

Nobody covers babies like Bernat® and Project Linus®

Project Linus® is comprised of hundreds of local chapters and thousands of volunteers across North America. They all work together to help provide a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriouly ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through gifts of new, handmade blankets, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers”. Project Linus®, since its inception in 1995, has distributed over three million blankets to children in need. Bernat® and Project® Linus have joined forces to cover babies across the United States and Canada.

Deadline Extended! We're so impressed by the popularity of Project Linus and the tremendous work blanketeers have been doing that we have extended the deadline to September 1, 2011. The recent postal strike in Canada caused some confusion about the shipping of finished blankets, so we hope that this extension will ensure that no blanket is left behind!

Download free knit & crochet patterns to make a blanket (or blankets) and send it to the appropriate address below.

Canadian blankets please send to:
Bernatcares & Project Linus
2700 Dufferin Street, Unit #90
Toronto, Ontario
M6B 4J6
American blankets please send to:
Bernatcares & Project Linus
100 Sonwil Drive
Buffalo, NY

We will be counting the blankets and watching the pile grow – check in periodically. All blankets received in the US will be shipped to Project Linus® Headquarters on September 1st, 2011. All blankets received in Canada will be shipped to the Project Linus Canada branch closest to their origin. The blankets can be of any style, either knit or crochet, but they must be homemade, washable, free of pins and come from smoke-free environments due to allergy reasons.

More inspiration? We've already started receiving boxes of blankets crafted by blanketeers, so come see the photographs of the blankets or read the stories behind the donations.
