Knitting for Charity

A proud recipient of a bear from the Mother Bear Project

Charity knitting, as Martha would say, is a good thing!

Many of us have causes near and dear to our hearts. My latest favorite knitting charity is the Mother Bear Project, an organization that facilitates the making of knitted bears for orphaned African children. Many of these precious kids were orphaned by wars in their countries, and many more were orphaned because of AIDS. It just breaks my heart.

But through the Mother Bear Project, we can do something to help!

Here's what the project does (from their website):

"The Mother Bear Project is dedicated to providing comfort and hope to children affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations, by giving them a gift of love in the form of a hand-knit or crocheted bear.

The simple gift of a hand-knit bear with a tag signed by the knitter has touched children with the message that they are unconditionally loved."

My knitting group is in the process of knitting bears for the Mother Bear Project—why don't you join us?

Check out the Mother Bear Project and start knitting bears for kids who really need them!
