Charity Bears

I just started working on a new project.  I'm knitting (and crocheting) teddy bears for kids in the cancer ward here in Egypt.  One of my neighbors attends the local catholic church and she shared a newsletter with me calling on knitters to make some bears.  I met with the woman who is organizing the project and she gave me a knitting pattern.  The pattern comes from a organization based in the UK called Teddies for Tragedies.  On their web site I found a lot of information about making the bears as well as other charity projects that you can get involved in.  While I'm not officially making bears for the Teddies for Tragedies charity it seems like a good organization.  In addition to the knitting pattern they also have a crochet pattern.  So far I've made one of each.  Which one do you like best?
