Mother Bear Project

In an effort to qualify a local high school student, Karolyn Klever, from Rochester Adams High School in our local school district into the National Honor Society, she hosted a session for the international "Mother Bear Project." It was held at one of my favorite knitting shops, Skeins on Main, this past Sunday.

If you are not familiar with the "Mother Bear Project," they are a non-profit group dedicated to providing comfort and hope to children, primarily those infected or affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations.

Please write or call Skeins on Main, to volunteer your time towards this worthy cause. Karolyn hopes to collect 75 bears to ship over to Africa by May 1st. Please contact Kristine, Karolyn's mom, for information to start your bear!

Here are some of those donated in previous years....

Your name will appear on a tag attached to the sleeve of each bear. The pattern is very simple, fast, and the result is really quite sweet! Then a red or pink heart will be hand-sewn to the chest of each bear once they are ready to be mailed.
The red hearts on this map indicate where your bear might be sent!

Come on and make a difference!
