Teddy Bears with Heart

Mission

To bring comfort to Children in Crisis, the Forgotten Elderly and the Terminally Ill

The Big Idea

To bring comfort to Children in Crisis, the Forgotten Elderly and the Terminally Ill

We currently gift to seven hospitals and over 120 agencies that include first responders and agencies that work with Children in Crisis, the Forgotten Elderly and the Terminally Ill. We have gifted over 60,000 bears and stuffed animals since we first started 8 years ago. We would need to have over 184,000 bears, per year, to meet the needs of those we currently service. We started out only giving a couple hundred bears per year and gave out over 20,000 last year. We would like to continue to increase those we are able to gift with a journey bear.

These stuffed animals have the power to transform a crying child into a face full of smiles. Children often enter the clinic with trepidation, unsure of why they are coming and what will happen during their visit. When they continue and have a difficult time during their visit, thanks to Teddy Bears with Heart, we are able to give them a brand new stuffed animal. The children clutch their new friends and leave our facility smiling, proud of being a good patient, and excited to return.

We are grateful for the donations from Teddy Bears with Heart and hope that other organizations will continue to support this charity which brings smiles to the underserved populations in our county. – Camille Sana – Director of Medical Clinics, Mee Memorial Hospital
