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 was very, very ill. I was allergic to everything ended up in the hospital time after time near death with a rare form of asthma until finally my room was altered to keep out all alergens and I was stuck in there for over 4 years except for when I was in the hospital. I had no sense of purpose. My daughter was in college in Atlanta and there were a lot of homeless people. It was very cold and she suggested that I crochet scarves for her to give to these people. I crocheted hundreds of scarves. She would come home to collect them and then go to the park to hand them out. She also carried them in her book bag so she could give them to people she saw on her way to class. I used really nice yarn and put a lot of imagination into them so they were easily identifiable. Later she would tell me who she gave each one to. I meant as much to me as I hope it meant to the people that they kept warm.
