First, it is our mission to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer "blanketeers." Second, it is our mission to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.
To maintain and exceed the current level of quality service and compassion, despite unprecedented growth, for the children and families receiving handmade comfort across the country. To sustain and support the nearly 400 chapter coordinators, and newly formed chapters through ongoing training, communication and appreciation efforts. To remain responsive and grateful to an estimated 35,000 volunteers nationwide. To secure funding to support the general operating expenses and program services of the organization, thus providing opportunity for the fulfillment of our mission. To concentrate full effort and energy on the mission of Project Linus.
