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 have always loved to crochet, and since I have way too many blankets of my own, I needed to get rid of some. I was in church and the pastor said we should use our abilities to help those less fortunate, and the only thing I knew to do was crochet blankets. Me, my mom, and some people from her church make blankets for the terminally ill and give them to our local Hospice. I don't know who gets them, but I hope they at least give someone comfort in their last days. It brings me joy to know that someone out there is keeping warm from something I made with my own two hands. We have donated in the last month 20 blankets. I think if you can give a little of yourself to someone in need, then you have done something wonderful with your life. I hope someone out there will read this and be inspired to do the same. We use whichever yarn we have available. People donate the yarn to use, most of which happens to be Lion Brand, but it is a mixture. I have found than many kinds mixed together is quite warm and pretty. No media, just love.
