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 make hats mittens & scarfs every year around Christmas. I make somewhere between 12 & 20 sets ranging in sizes from infant to adult. I don't believe Salvation Army even knows who I am. I drop them off when I am finished and no one has ever asked who I was. I have been doing this for about 5 years now. I don't need or want recognition for what I do. I do it because I saw a little kid and his mother that neither had hat or gloves. I can afford to do this on my own so I do. I just love to crochet and this gives me some thing to make that is worth doing. It also often gives me the chance to learn new stitches.
Any one that wants to give of them selves can find an organization to help. Just ask around. It will do your heart good to know you could help someone keep warm.
I also give quilts to Linus every year, thru the local quilt guild. It also lets me practice my skills.
