"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 at the Hospital

The project: Turning our Project Linus quilts over to Marian Medical Center pediatrics unit staff.

Time:20 minutes

Why bother?
This brought to a close our first foray into Project Linus. The local coordinator was very thoughtful in her inclusion of our girls (thereby me) in the hand off.

Worth it?
Yes. A great final chapter for this project, though we're likely to return to it at some point. E was very proud of her quilt, and happy to see where it was going to be used. I think it also helped her let go of it.

  1. How great to be involved in a charity in which you get to actually SEE where your efforts go. I think that's awesome. Good for you and the girls. A blanket that's special can ALWAYS make you feel better. I'm sure these children will appreciate them!
