Hay muchos programas diferentes que usted puede participar si te interesa tejer por una buena causa. One of those programs is The Mother Bear Project. Para este proyecto, crochet un oso de juguete a un niño en África o Haití o viven con el VIH / SIDA o ha perdido uno de los padres a la enfermedad.

Hasta la fecha, más de 67,000 crochet or knit bears have been donated to this project. One group that has recently become active in donating to the cause is the Sioux Falls, South Dakota chapter of PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Gays and Lesbians). They’ve made about one dozen bears so far but should be making more soon.

Why give these children a crocheted toy bear rather than a scarf or blanket like many other charity projects do? The goal here is to provide the children with as much comfort as possible and what better way to do that than with a hand crafted teddy bear?

Si usted está interesado en participar, you need to purchase the $5 patrón de ganchillo oso from the organization and then you’ll get all of the information that you need to complete your bear and send it in. Alternatively you can sponsor someone else’s bear or make a yarn donation.

  1. This charity sounds lovely. And it may be the first crochet for charity project I actually do since toys and dolls are my favorite thing to make.

    Not sure children in many parts of Africa need a scarf anyway!

      @KaylaThere are a few good charities that accept toys and I tend to like those ones because it’s different from the usual stuff. Not that there’s anything wrong with blankets and scarves. :)
