This was the 28th bear I knitted for the Mother Bear Project.
I made it in February, and gave it, along with three others, to Amy, the Mother Bear founder, in early March.
In April, Amy took her second trip to Africa. She traveled to a number of countries, and visited many of the organizations that help her distribute handmade bears to children who have been impacted by the AIDS epidemic there. Of course, she also handed out lots of bears. The last time I saw Amy was the day before she left for Africa, and I asked her to please take lots of pictures while she was there.
Yesterday I received the following note in the mail:
“I just got back from Africa and it was pretty amazing. The children loved the bears. I have so many photos to show you! I will bring them to our next knitting group. Hope to see you there! Love, Amy”
Also enclosed was this photo:
My God, how I would love to gobble up those little feet.
