The Mother Bear Project

20 Dec

I know I have already shared this wonderful charity with you, but I feel like I can’t do it too much!

Here’s a description of what they do, from their own 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.”

I discovered the Mother Bear Project a year ago and started immediately making bears. Since then, I have made 29 and am just about to start my 30th.

One of the wonderful things that Amy (the founder of the Mother Bear Project) does is to share pictures of the children who receive their bears whenever possible. Thanks to her, I have already been able to see 8 of my bears in the hands of a child. There are no words to describe how it feels.

Here are the pictures that I was so lucky to get to see…

If what the Mother Bear Project does resonates with you, check here the different ways in which you can help.

Happy holidays!
