Project Linus ~ A Community Service Project

Team Up with the AJSA for Project Linus

Project LinusThe AJSA Board of Trustees needs your help! They are taking on a community service project for our membership by helping out Project Linus. Project Linus is a national organization that donates hand-made blankets to children in the hospital that are critically ill. Hospitals can be a scary place for kids of all ages, and Project Linus gives something to children to make them feel secure while they are on the road to recovery.

This is where the AJSA membership comes into play. By working together as a national membership the Junior Board would like to donate at least 65 handmade fleece tie blankets made by our members; 5 made at each regional and 50 made at the National Classic, to the Project Linus chapter in Louisville, Kentucky. The Trustees have already started making a few blankets but need your help to reach our goal and maybe even exceed it. Come to Regionals and Nationals ready to tie blankets and be part of AJSA’s efforts with Project Linus.

Can’t make it to a Classic but still want to be a part of AJSA’s effort with Project Linus? Even if you are not a junior member maybe just an avid crafter, we’d still love to have your help! You can mail your blankets to the American Simmental Association office by July 4 and we’ll include them in our count and delivery to the Louisville chapter. If you’d like to donate to the cause the Trustees are fundraising to buy fleece (just $50 makes 8 blankets for infants!). For more information email hwine@simmgene.com.
