Cutest Darn Bear For A Good Cause

I'm at Stitches West for the weekend.  Living amongst rows and rows of beautiful yarn.  I purposely didn't bring my rolling shopping cart this year, so I wouldn't buy too much yarn.  What I did buy was an ornament from the Mother Bear Project.  It was 20 dollars and the proceeds will send 6 bears to Africa.  The Mother Bear Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing comfort and hope to children, primarily those affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations, by giving them a gift of love in the form of hand-knit and crocheted bears.

I'd like to help by making some bears for this project.  I see they sell their pattern.  I need to find a machine knit pattern.

A cute bear and an "inspired creative" idea.
