Day 8: Made blankets for sick kids.
I don’t know if you’ve heard of Project Linus, but it’s a great program. Participants donate a blanket to Project Linus, and they give the blanket to a very sick child at a hospital who could use some comfort, and lets them know that someone cares.
Event: My mom had bought some big squares of fleece a while back, to make into blankets for Project Linus, but we never got around to it. So, with new enthusiasm, I located the fleece, and my mom, my brother, and I made three blankets out of the material.
Reaction: We just dropped them off at the fire station, (The Project Linus donation box is there.) so I won’t get to see the recipient’s reaction to the blanket. I wish I could, though!
Would I do it again? Yes! It was actually pretty fun making the blankets.
Cost: My mom bought the fabric so long ago. I don’t remember how much it costs.
Effort: My fingers were a little stiff when I finished, but nothing too strenuous.
Time: About an hour.
