the night was VERY busy! project linus has joined in on Disneys Give a Day/Get a Day promotion. all a person has to do is donate 1 handmade blanket (other restrictions do apply), and they get a free ticket to disneyland! with that being said, we collected a little more than 1000 blankets last night alone!!! and this has been going on since january 1st! we have a huge 5 hr "make a blanket day" event this saturday and she's estimating almost double last nights blankets!! on a happy note, these blankets are being distributed to local children and veterans hospitals as well as shelters as fast as they're coming in. the chapter coordinator for bakersfield also just took over the fresno chapter. so she's covering a large area where many blankets are needed! she also has been sending blankets over to haiti. it was a non-stop night!
i'm scared to think what saturday has in store for me, LOL. but i know this is for the greater good, obviously, so i won't complain. last year they struggled collecting blankets and i'm glad this year has been more plentiful :)
