Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

I belong to the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians (LAOH)a Catholic Irish group and St Vincent de Paul Society. The LAOH adopted Christmas gift giving to needy teenagers through the "Secret Santa of Southern Illinois". I make good use of donated yarn (even the smallest ball of left over yarn is used to trim a hat or make a stripe). I spend 2 to 4 hours per day knitting or crocheting hats, headbands, scarves, wristers or mittens to donate each Christmas. Please see pictures 1 and 2. My favorite yarns are Homespun and Vanna's Choice.

I also use plastic grocery bags to crochet sleeping mats for the homeless (see picture 3).

I encourage everyone to pick up their hooks and give someone in need comfort and warmth.
