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-knitted or crocheted bear. The simple gift of a hand-knitted bear with a tag signed by the knitter has touched children with the message that they are unconditionally loved.
You will need to purchase the knitting pattern from the group as well as post your completed items to a U.S. postal address. After that, the organisation forwards your bears to appropriate charities in South Africa, Zambia, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Botswana, Malawi and Ethiopia, judged to be needy of such bears.
Make a bear, make a difference!
