Wow, we have had a busy year. From March to November, we have paid our knitters over R150 000 and donated over 3 000 bears to various organisations in need. In November alone, our knitters have been working incredibly hard as we have had requests for over 800 bears in the lead up to Christmas.
We have also had an exciting new project producing bears made to order as the official gift for the 2019 Matric Leavers of St Anne's Diocesan College. We are thrilled to have been given this opportunity by the St Anne's Old Girls Guild!
More great news is The Care Bear Project has been sponsored as an official member of the Midlands Meander, and for the first time, our bears are now available at the shop at the Mandela Capture Site in Howick.
We could not achieve any of this without our sponsors, and in this regard we would like to thank all our donors, and very specifically the following companies and individuals who make regular monthly donations, without whom our project would not be possible:-
N3TC Changing Lives Campaign
Hard Asset Trust
Ndaka Safari Lodge
Umhlanga Holiday Rentals
Moore Roadlife (Litres for Education Program)
Monique and Phil Bowmaker
Brigid and Nils Lutz
Sharon and John McNair
Michael and Camilla Porter
Bev Sinclair and Bronwyn Gordon
Rian van der Merwe and his amazing family
