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.
This is a KAL/CAL that Dr. Gemma from the Cogknitive Podcast is doing and thought you might want to go over and join in with this!
Get out those scraps and warm up those hooks and/or needles!
Send completed bears with $3.00 to cover cost of postage for shipping to Africa to:
Mother Bear Project P.O. Box 62188 Minneapolis, MN 55426
Volunteers will sew a red felt heart onto your bear’s chest. If you did not buy a tag from them, volunteers will also fill out one for you, with your name or anyone’s name you suggest on it, to be attached to your bear.
These bears are meant to be personal, so each child will know the name of a person who loves them and is thinking of them!
For more info on the KAL/CAL check out Wolfe Farms group on Rav or the Cogknitive Podcast group. Super fun to make!
