Teddy Bears Made From Fallen Soldiers’ Uniforms Help Loved Ones Cope With Loss
“Matthew Bears” is an initiative where teddy bears are sewn using uniforms of soldiers’ who were killed while on mission. A mother who lost her son to the war in Afghanistan founded the project.
Lisa Freeman makes free-of-charge teddy bears for loved ones of the fallen soldiers to help them cope with their loss. The project was named after her son who was killed in action nine days into the mission.
The project is part of ‘The Matthew Freeman Project’, which supports education in Afghanistan and other parts of the world.
