Lisa Freeman lost her son, Matthew:
These uniforms were not random. Instead, they’re made from deceased service members.
The project, called Matthew Bears, was born some time after she tragically lost her own son, Matthew Freeman, to enemy fire in Afghanistan in 2009
The goal is to create teddy bears for the children of lost servicemen and women out of the cloth of their uniforms.
Any family that has lost a member in service can send the service member’s uniform to Lisa Freeman to have it made into teddy bears for that service member’s children, or to anyone related to that service member.
The most amazing part. It’s free.
Please consider supporting Lisa and help her in her cause by visiting The Matthew Freeman Project and donating.
