Sally from my knitting group asked us to make a teddy bear for The Mother Bear Project - Heck Yeah I said! These cute things get sent to Ethiopia, Rwanda, Lesotho, Haiti, Botswana, Ghana, South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Namibia, Zimbabwe and elsewhere kiddies need some teddies.
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.
