‘Make a bear. Make a difference’
The Mother Bear Project is a non-profit organisation intent on bringing hope and comfort to children, primarily affected by HIV/Aids all over the world. Many will be orphans. These children will be in need of love and comfort and will receive a hand knitted or crocheted bear. Click here to see pictures.
This simple act of giving a teddy bear to a child who has nothing else in the world is truly heart-warming and sends them a message that they are cared for, and that they do matter. I have recently requested a pattern from this wonderful project and can’t wait to start. I urge you to do the same. Please visit the website for more details.
All bears are created from the same pattern. Each pattern you order includes a tag for you to sign and attach to your bear before sending. Once they receive your bear they will sew on a red felt heart before shipping it out to a needy child.
I’ll be posting my contribution as soon as it is made so please subscribe to this blog to receive updates!
Even if you can’t knit or crochet. You can give by sending supplies or donating time or money to this organisation.
To date, 49,650 bears have been sent to children affected by HIV/AIDS through their help!
