Knitted and crocheted bears, voluntarily made by creative and generous people, are being donated in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe, North America and South America. They are reaching orphanages, schools, 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.
