Project Linus

*I received an invite for this event. Nothing monetary was exchanged. All opinions are my own.*

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and UPS celebrate the December 17th Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD(TM) release of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters with an exclusive charity event to support Project Linus at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta on Monday, December 16th. Inspired by the Golden Fleece in the film, event goers made handmade fleece blankets for kids in need to kick off Project Linus’ annual National Make a Blanket Day on February 15th.

My son is an avid fan of Percy Jackson so when I got the invite to attend the event at the GA Aquarium I was so happy. Not only is it a great movie but the event itself was for such a great cause.

If you have not seen the first movie you are missing out. While my son was off watching the movie I was busy looking at the many different quilts. My daughter noticed this one first….

My mom use to make quilts so I have a few that she made before she passed that look similar. They even had tables where you can join in and make quilts also.

  1. AWESOME!!! We LOVE LOVE LOVE the Georgia Aquarium. Pair it with Percy Jackson and you have a definite winner. My daughter just finished the “Sea of Monsters” book, so this reminded me to order the DVD for her for her stocking. (We haven’t seen the film so I’m glad to know it’s good!)

    MOST important is the wonderful work of Project Linus. I love that they had tables where you could help make blankets, too!! You know an event is inspiring when the kids are taken with it!! I’m going to check out the Project Linus link. What a wonderful organization!! –Lisa

    That sounds like a wonderful event and an even more wonderful charity! My son in a Percy Jackson fanatic! He’s read all the books and seen both movies. I bought him House of Hades and he finished it in two days! I’m an avid reader myself so it warms my heart that he shares that passion especially since more boys aren’t really readers- glad to hear you’re raising a reader too!

    Kita, I hope you and your family have a a wonderful & blessed Christmas!
