What is our fascination with the teddy bear? I mean, there isn’t much soft and cuddly about a big grizzly bear bearing his teeth in a roar. But when you pint the size, make it soft with stuffing, fun colors and a sweet cub face, the human race just melts! Teddy bears are the #1 stuffed animal that all kids want and most adults think to give as gifts. So we love the teddy bear! But why not go with a bear that can give double the smiles to kids across the nation! The next time you are looking for a sweet teddy bear to gift; take a closer look at Bears for Humanity
A Teddy Bear that gives to others
Now, Miss Jade has a birthday coming up, plus our new baby girl is due next week. And we always get new stuffed animals for a new baby. Plus Miss Jade has been wanting another stuffed animal for her collection. So when I heard about the brilliant mission of Bears for Humanity, I knew that had to be our next teddy bear!
The Bears for Humanity teddy bear is luxuriously soft! They are the only 100% Certified Organic Cotton/ Hemp teddy bears in the world. Plus, they are naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic which gives parents the peace of mind they don’t get from polyester plush toys! Not to mention Made in the USA, thus giving jobs to those who need one through CalWORKs in Northern California.
Not to mention they are incredibly soft, and cuddly! And oh so cute! They have 2 sizes available such as the 16″ premium bears and the 7″ baby bears.
The Premium bears (like we got) feature poseable limbs for snugglier hugs. That means you can move their arms to different positions and they will stay there! They don’t flop around. And they are very well designed to stay in the posed position, without the threat of coming off the bear or sliding back to the original position due to gravity.
They also come in a variety of colors such as
- Sammie—iconic beige
- Snugglie—chocolate brown
The Bears for Humanity teddy bear makes the perfect playmate for little kids. They are great for cuddling, story time, tea parties or just as a new best friend!
But what is truly unique about the Bears for Humanity teddy bear is that they aren’t just a sweet stuffed teddy bear for your little one to love. Like I mentioned earlier, they have a unique mission. To change the world one teddy bear at a time! And boy do they ever!
With each purchase of your own Bears for Humanity teddy bear, another teddy bear is delivered to a needy veteran’s house, a children’s hospital or an underprivileged household! So with your gift to someone you love, you are also gifting to another child in need!
Such charities include
- Toys for Tots
- Expect Miracles Foundation
- Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital
- One Simple Wish
- Save the Children
- Semper Fi
The fact that Bears for Humanity donates a bear for every teddy bear purchased really struck home with me. We had a few years in our life when we hit hard times. And our children were recipients of kindness like Toys for Tots. We also know many other veteran families, or children with terminal illness that have been blessed by charities like these that work to bring a smile to children’s faces.
So while one may not think giving a teddy bear really matters; it definitely matters to the child. It can brighten their lives in dark times. And that affects the entire family. I’m honored to share this beautiful mission that Bears for Humanity has set forth.
