The Back to School Bear ~ Mother Bear Project

Happy August 1st everyone!

It is me...

Today is a very special day!

It is the day my angel brother Emmitt was born 16 years ago!

He was a wonderful Mother Bear Ambassador for The Mother Bear Project.

So in honor of his birthday, we made a special Mother Bear for him and sent it to Africa to make a child happy!

Isn't he cute?

As we were making him... he turned into a Back to School Bear with reading glasses, sweater vest and a book!

He says...
You are never too cool for school!

He is all ready to learn his ABC's!

He even has his first book in his hand!

...and a new sweater vest to show off his smart style on his first day of class!

I cannot wait for the yellow school bus to pull up at my stop this year!

R-Chee remembers when he was in school and is so excited for this new little bear.

He will have so much FUN enjoying all of his adventures in Africa!

Have a wonderful trip little bear!

Thank you to The Mother Bear Project for all of the wonderful work they do to make children happy!

Melissa, R-Chee & Angel Emmitt

I love your bear! Maybe when I get a bit more advanced with my crochet I can give one of them a try. I like doing things for charity.
