It’s two months until Christmas (sorry to keep mentioning it), and there’s something I want to do. Let’s do another (very informal) Mother Bear drive!
Last year I made and sent a half-dozen bears for the Mother Bear Project.If you missed it or forgot, the Mother Bear Project collects hand-made (knit or crocheted) teddy bears and delivers them to children living in emerging nations whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS. It’s a great foundation with a simple message that I think all knitters can understand: sending comfort and love through the gift of something handmade.
(Plus, the bears are crazy cute, easy to make, and a great way to use up leftover bits of yarn.)I’ve made 7 more bears since last Christmas, and I’d like to make another 3 before I send them to Mother Bear HQ this Christmas (to make a round 10).
Will you join me on this bear-making adventure? Will you pledge to make a bear (or 2 or 3)? Even one bear can make a big difference in these kids’ lives and let them know someone is thinking about them.
How many bears will you make?
