At Project Linus, a non-profit organization, we provide homemade blankets to children in need. Our blankets are lovingly made by adults and children from all walks of life and many different sources.

Blankets are collected locally and distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug.


The blankets are given to children through many organizations.  Some of the organizations that have distributed our blankets to children in need are:


  • A Kid's Place
  • Brandon Regional Hospital Pediatrics and NICU
  • Children's Advocacy Care
  • Florida Hospital Pediatrics
  • LifeCare Women's Center
  • Foundation for Dreams
  • St. Joseph's Southshore
  • Children's Protective Services
  • Caregiver's Helping Hand
  • Hillsborough County Family Court System
  • Children's Home
  • Pregnancy Care Center, Plant City
  • TAPS (the military's Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors)


If you know of a local organization serving children in need that would like to receive blankets, please contact us.


Project Linus receives many letters and thank you notes every year from children. Over and over they express how touched they are that a stranger would take the time to make something for them.  Purchased blankets are nice, but handmade blankets are from the heart.
