Project Linus is a non-profit organization that provides homemade blankets to children in need. The blankets are lovingly made by adults and children from all walks of life and many different sources.
In the Fall of 2011 Just Orthodontics started collecting blankets for Project Linus as a way to give back to our community. We worked with our referring Dental Office and several area business’s. We have called our collections events Snuggle with a Smile ~ its brings a Smile to the person making the blanket and then it is brings a smile to the person receiving that blanket and many times the child will have years of snuggling with their treasured blanket. The outpouring of support from our patients, family and friends has been overwhelming in the 5 years since we have started this project we are proud to say that over 4500 blankets have made their way to children in need of a measure of comfort all across the USA! Many blankets stay right here in our own communities and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Camp Odyain , a heart camp for children with congenial heart defects.
We love to see the look on people’s faces when their bring in their blankets which are truly a labor love as you never know who will receive the blanket you made but you can be sure it will be received with a SMILE!
