Salam alaykum

I am looking for teddy bears here... or people whose might be able to send teddys or any other toys to kids to Gaza.

They goes to kids whose lost all they toys during last war in Gaza (2008/2009) via next Turkish aid ship (Mavi Marmara) or by Free Gaza Movement.

I will send later contacts to Mavi Marmara or Free Gaza to this thread.

I would not be surprised if some Israeli's say that the teddy bears are a threat to their national security...

No no, teddy bears as any other dolls are on black list (things not allowed to send to Gaza). As well wheelchairs, books and paper.

I would be happy to knit some teddies or toys, sister harb, but it would take me a little while.
Would anybody care to join me?
I am sure I can find some free patterns on the Internet.

I found a free knitting and crochet pattern for 'teddies for tragedies', if anybody is interested. Downloads are available on the website.

Sister harb, I am knitting something else at the moment, but I will try the teddy pattern next and let you know how I get on with it.

Wait, I don't mean to be a buzz-kill because I think this is a beautiful idea MashaAllah, may Allah reward you all.

However, if they aren't allowing teddy bears into Gaza why not spend your time and effort sending aid that won't be destroyed or taken by the Israelis? I can just see the soldiers ripping into the bears searching for weapons or bombs.

glo, some really cute teddy bears you got there!

I think Ahlaambella is right, we should look into other types of aid that isn't black-listed and prone to be destroyed by Israeli soldiers..

I sincerely hope that AhlaamBella and Believe.x are wrong ... imsad
What do others think? Is it worth trying to pursue this? Or would I be better off selling teddy bears here in the UK and sending the money as a donation?
(Sister harb, what do you think?)

Believe.x, those are not my bears - only a picture I found on the website.

However, I knitted my first bear, and here it is:
