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.

Hello, I have been to one of the workshops and helped to cut edges of the fabric and pin the lining to the covers. I truly enjoyed the time I was helping. I also love to knit and will try to make some afghans to give away.

I just wanted to let you know about an incident where the blankets were used a little different. One of our primay school teachers was killed by a drunk driver just before Christmas. We are a small community and everyone was touched by this tragic accident. She taught second grade. The Linus Project came in and gave blankets to all her students as a way to help them through this time. I thought this was a wonderful gift and the children were so happy. One of the children's mother works with me and she said her little boy was comforted by his blanket.

Let's hope more and more folks will get involved with this project. It helps the child receiving and the person who helped make the blanket.
