***Note: our programs in NY, NJ and Maryland have been closed. If you wish to donate bears to our Arizona program, please contact Gloria Brown through our contact form on this site. Thank you!

Knitted and crocheted bears, voluntarily made by creative and generous people, are being donated to children across the world. They are reaching orphanages, schools, remote villages as well as hospitals where children are undergoing medical tests or treatments.

It is our hope that these small and easy-to-make toys will touch the hearts of many and provide joy to all.
