Project Linus Haiti Relief Effort CHALLENGE

An urgent call has come in to volunteers across the country. Project Linus has been asked to coordinate an effort to collect 10,000 blankets for the children of Haiti, the small island country recently devastated by earthquake.

Blanketeers out there, here is what you can do; make any blanket you can, of any size, these can be afghans, fleece or quilts, we only ask that they be turned in as soon as completed, as the children of Haiti are in urgent need. The goal is to have collected 10,000 blankets by March 1st.

Blankets can be turned in to any Marden's store location in Maine, or directed to Project Linus chapters located throughout the United States.  Here is the link to find your local chapter:
Here is my challenge:  HOW MANY CAN WE MAKE by March 1st?

 Here is how to enter.
  1. You can enter once by posting here that you will contribute a quilt of any size.
  2. You can enter a second time by blogging about the Project Linus Challenge and posting the link here.
  3. You can enter a third time by sending a picture of the quilt you have finished for donation and telling us where you donated it.
I will work on prizes and let you know when I have something lined up.

Good Luck!


  1. Hi there!
    I will donate 2 blankets - do I just drop them off at Marden's??

  2. If you are in Maine, it is just that simple.

    Nationwide quilts can be given to any Project Linus Chapter. Every state has one. Here is the link to find your local chapter:
