Comfort Birds were first carved by Frank Foust in 1982. Since then woodcarvers all over the world have joined in and together with my woodcarving friends in the Capital District of Upstate NY we have given away hundreds of these little birds to groups like Hospice and Stride Adaptive Sports as well as to shelters for battered women and homeless vets. They function like a worry stone and are a powerful stress reliever. For more info, google Comfort Birds and you'll find an article titled "A Bird in the Hand" from Woodcarving Illustrated about Frank and his flock.
