Book of Dreams grants other wishes, too

Re "Book of Dreams" (Page A1, Dec. 24): The article on the Sacramento Bee's Book of Dreams, the annual holiday effort to help people in need, told about the charitable donations from readers fulfilling the requests of 13 groups or individuals whose stories were highlighted in the newspaper. I am from one of the other organizations that received help after those 13 big wishes were granted. I can't thank The Bee’s readers enough for their generosity. Through this Book of Dreams’ gift to us, we can purchase yarn, batting, thread and fabric to make handmade blankets for children in need in the greater Sacramento area. This past year, our Project Linus organization gave out 9,353 blankets to children from infants to 18-year-olds. We wouldn't be able to do nearly that amount if it weren't for the Bee's loyal and benevolent readers.
