I‘m knitting bears for the Mother Bear Project and a little while ago I asked Simple Kids readers to join in with me in knitting and crocheting bears for this charity.
This giveaway is now closed. Thank you!
If you aren’t familiar with Mother Bear, it is a charity that is dedicated to making a difference and bringing comfort to children impacted by AIDS/HIV in emerging nations by giving them a handmade bear. The bears are knit or crocheted and then given to the children with a tag signed by the crafter who poured his or her love into the stitches.
Even if you aren’t a knitter, there are plenty of ways you can help out with The Mother Bear Project:
- Knit or crochet bears
- Sponsor bears
- Join the Mother Bear Project on facebook
- Purchase Mother Bear gifts
- Make a monetary donation
- Donate needed supplies
I would love it if those of you who knit, or crochet, would knit along with me on a Mother Bear KAL (knit-a-long).
