Mother Bear Project

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.

KNIT A BEAR

All bears are made from the same knit or crochet pattern. They are made from a World War II-era pattern that was chosen because the bears are lightweight and easy to send. 

Each pattern will include a tag for you to sign your first name and attach to your bear's wrist before sending it back. 

We will sew a red felt heart on your bear and ship it to one of our partners for distribution to the children. 

Please include $3 per bear to help cover the costs of shipping the bears.
