ORGANIZATION: Doctors Giving Back

Bears Bring Smiles
Bears Bring Smiles!

If you LOVE to KNIT or CROCHET (or you know someone who does) we NEED YOUR HELP!!!

Our medical teams take adorable Doctors Giving Back Bears, knit and crocheted by volunteers all over the World, to kids in remote African villages when we visit to provide medical care and set up water purification stations. Each year we distribute well over 1000 snuggly bears, all made from our bear pattern which we are happy to provide you with when you sign up! These precious kids have NEVER had a toy, they play with sticks and rocks...image the smiles we get when we deliver bears! Imagine the difference you will make in the life of a child who has nothing to call their own by knitting bears! Request our DGB Bear patterns today :)
