"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Project Linus

We were still on the road today, but I've been researching some potential projects in which to take part when we return home. A friend suggested this one. We've been ushered into the program and look forward to getting started next week.

The project:
Project Linus provides blankets to children in times of trauma and stress. I found the local chapter, contacted the area leader and have been accepted to serve as a "Blanketeer."

20 minutes so far - research and communications

Why bother?
The girls like to sew, and I've made a couple of quilts and really had a good time. We have allowed our sewing efforts to be thwarted by the mere fact that we don't have an outlet for the things we make. We don't know many people who can use another blanket or quilt. Project Linus knows a LOT!

Worth it?
I hope so. We'll let you know how this project progresses.
