Charity Spotlight – Knitting Without Borders

School is back in session for most children, and many of us are in “kid mode,” gathering up school supplies, packing lunches, and taking memorable photos of their first day of school.

One wonderful way to make a difference in another child’s life is to donate a handmade bear to Knitting Without Borders. Don’t let the name fool you – this fabulous charity donates both knit and crocheted bears to remote villages, orphanages, and hospitals. The impact of this charity is worldwide, and they provide donations to children in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe, North America, and South America.

Crochet bear with heartInclude your own kiddos in the project by teaching them to knit or crochet, and have them help you create a meaningful teddy bear for a child in need. After all, compassion and creativity are important lessons to be taught both at home and in school.
