When it was all said and done more than two dozen children went home with a newly created furry friend. Makers from IPMH participated in our first Mini Maker Faire held on the Northside of Chicago at Schurz High School. The lone sock is no longer useless and tossed aside. We make Rescue Bears from mismatched socks to give them purpose and meaning. Individually created and designed, Rescue Bears bring comfort to youths and teens particularly those going throgh a difficult time.
