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.

Relay For Life

I craft items such as scarves, hats, baby blankets, granny square blankets, well anything that I can crochet I do. I buy all the yarn myself, create an item, and then sell it at a local craft show or on site at Relay For Life. All proceeds go directly back to the American Cancer Society. I do not take a dime.
I became involved about 7 years ago when my daughter became team captain. We are the Mole Patrol and there are 3 generations on our team.
My Mom was one of Eight children, 7 of those children had cancer including my mom. I do this in memory of them and all those battling this disease.
I crochet all year round and use what ever I can afford or is available to me. I would encourage everyone who has a talent to find a charity to enrich not only their lives but the lives of others.
If you can Dream it, you can create it. If you can create it you just might change the world for someone. Pat Arieta
