A Bear-y Fun Project

Information courtesy of Nina: a well-knit shop

Are you a charity crafter? Nina: a well-knit shop in Chicago is having a knit-along to benefit the Mother Bear Project!

The Mother Bear Project sends handmade bears all over the world to comfort children affected by HIV/AIDS.

The bear pattern is available in both a knit and crochet version, is easy to make, and is a great place to be creative and add playful details.

If you are in the Chicago area, Nina is having the knit-along Saturday 7/14, Sunday 7/15, Saturday 7/21, and Sunday 7/22.

However, even if you cannot make it to Nina’s, you can still be a part of the Mother Bear Project! Their website has all the info you need on how to sponsor a bear, make a donation, or purchase a pattern to create your very own bear.

What other causes do you enjoy crafting for?

    My neighbor Amy started the Mother Bear Project. It is truly amazing what a difference one person (who is then helped by so many others) can make in the world!
    One look at the faces of the children receiving these bears is all it takes to make you want to cast on!
