Introducing new donation option: Project Linus








A long time Quickrewards member is the area coordinator for Project Linus.

“Project Linus is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization. Our Mission is 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 HOMEMADE WASHABLE blankets and quilts lovingly created by volunteer blanketeers. We also provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups to make blankets for hurting children. Many of our blanketeers cannot afford the costs of materials (fleece, yarn, fabric etc) so we provide this free to them through contributions to the San Jose Chapter of Project Linus.”

QuickRewards members can help Project Linus by donating their tokens (100,000 stacks) or cash balance ($1 stacks). Hopefully with everything we collect will allow Project Linus to give away a lot more blankets then they do now.

What a great cause! I am rather new to QR and am looking forward to the time I accumulate enough tokens to make the first of hopefully many donations. Thanks for a great site and the opportunity!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to
Dmitri and Quick Rewards for sponsoring PROJECT LINUS. All these comments warm my heart and hopefully we will be able to reach more hurting children with your donations.
To tandt95--check the National website and see where there is a chapter near you. We always need more blankets.

Great idea, I'll happily support this great effort!

Just curious, what does 100,000 tokens equate to cash wise? Hopefully more than $1.00...the stacks of the two donation types being what they are made me wonder.

This is a great idea and bless you for thinking of a way to make donations to worthy worthwhile organizations.

I think its a great idea to have this charity as an option for token redemption.

Does anyone know if the greenfield QR survey club/bonus is still being offered? I already took a survey today so the page I get when I click doesnt mention it so I'm wondering if its gone. That was a really good deal besides QR pays more than greenfieldonline does to take most surveys @ their site.

Hi Nancy,
We still have the bonus structure for surveys.

Thank you Dimitry, I have done 17 but am going to go for 20 if I can get one today and tomorrow. Will e-mail you @ yahoo to claim reward

I finally made it to 100,000 tokens! I was hoping this project would still be around when I could donate to it.

Thanks Dmitry.
