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.
