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 found this group by accident, it was meant to be. This is a wonderful Christian group. Many angels, butterflies and smilies are sent out. We're given requests weekly from Cindy, the lady that oversees the group. Special Angelings come through daily. These are for someone who has lost a loved one, or someone terminally ill.

It's been as good for me as well as to the many I've sent angels to.

I'm disabled and there's so little I can do for others, this makes me feel better about myself as I can crochet. The Blessings it gives me and the recipients in need of hope and know someone cares.

I supply all the materials needed for my projects, watch for sales. I think someone has stuff donated, but I won't ask for any -- I don't have much, but I think someone else might need it more. I use any of your yarn, buy in large skeins when I can find it.

We sometimes get thank yous that will break your heart. Saying their angel arrived when hope was desperately needed. I spend a couple hours a day crocheting angels and labeling, bagging and packaging.

Please check out our site. It's the only group I was ever in and I love it!
