Charity to Help People in Recovery
When you knit for the charity Recovery Buddies, you offer much-needed support and comfort to people in treatment for mental illness and addictions.
Thus Recovery Buddies was born. The program unites those entering treatment with knitted buddies: cuddly pillows with arms, legs, and personality, perfect for snuggling when you need comfort.
