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.

Hi, I would like to tell you about my mum not me. She will be 80 this year and is still putting her knitting and crocheting talents to good use.

Mum knitted toys and jumpers for the new immigrants to Israel for me and when we went over we were able to give some personally to children who had had to leave everything in Russia. It was a delight to see the joy on their faces.

She knits for local hospitals, knee rugs and premmy baby clothes etc. Much of her work has been sold on trading table to help children's homes over seas thu her local church and to put money toward a bus to pick "us oldies" up for outings.

At the moment she is busy knitting squares for blankets for a mission.

She has been given lots of different kinds of wool, Lion Brand being among it but as she is 4,000mls away from me, living in South Australia I'm not sure of the kind of wool.

I would definitely encourage anyone who can knit and is wondering what to do with their time to find a local church that supports a mission here or overseas or get on to your local council or craft council....they are sure to be able to put you in touch with someone.

I think it helps keep mum young and she is never bored.
