The volunteers at 'My Recovery Buddy'  knit, crochet, and sew huggable, lovable Buddies to help people in recovery and treatment.

We rely on our team of crafters who continue to share their talents by helping us with our mission. We are always in need of more volunteers and there are many ways to help!


Making a Buddy is quite easy and we have patterns for your use listed on this site, or you can make up your own. My Recovery Buddy has a managed group on Ravelry (a free online community for fiber arts, requires logging in to see group) where volunteers share crafting tips and ideas, and sign up to fulfill requests. If you are interested in creating a Buddy, you may contact us through our website or through our group on Ravelry.


Don’t worry, though, if you aren’t feeling crafty – there are still many other ways in which you can help! We would love to receive donations of any of the following:

  • Gift cards to craft supplies stores such as Joann’s, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, or

  • Stamps - regular, Priority or International are greatly appreciated! (mailing costs are our biggest expenditure)


Also, we are now a 501c3, which means that any monetary donations are tax deductable !

You may make a donation via Paypal (button on top of the site), or by checks made payable to "My Recovery Buddy".


Please send donations to:
