Since a small advert in a Church Magazine back in November 2011 asking for teddies to be knitted for children in disaster areas of the world or in trauma 4,172 teddies have been distributed to 29 different countries by many individuals and organisations.
Teddies have been knitted by groups and people knitting alone. It is amazing to see photos of so many children bonding with the teddies and a special thank you to all near and far who have made this project so worth while.
