Teddy Bears with Heart

Den of Good Bears of the World


our mission

We need your help to help dry the tears of children, the terminally ill and lonely seniors who have been abused, traumatized or hurt, by gifting a teddy bear. Hopefully bringing them a little comfort and happiness during a time of crisis. Please help us put a Teddy Bear in the arms of someone who needs comfort!

Your federal tax-deductible donation, or donated new Teddy Bear, will be given to a child or adult through one of our programs.

Teddy Bears with Heart is a Den of Good Bears of the World.

 

What is Good Bears of the World? Good Bears of the World (GBW) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization which provides teddy bears to children of all ages, where love, solace, and comfort can
make a difference. Last year alone, they gave out 20,000 to children in need including victims of floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and domestic violence, both in the United States and abroad. Their bears are also given to many sick, injured, and underprivileged children, as well as, lonely seniors.

Help bring comfort to children in crisis, the terminally ill and the forgotten elderly, donate a bear today!

"Thank you so much Susie and Teddy Bears with Heart, for providing us with bears for children in Pakistan. Pakistan is a country of vast wealth, and vast poverty. We were able to give all of the bears to children in the poorest parts of Pakistan. We hope that these small joys will bring comfort to the children, as well as change their perception of America.

These small gifts helped us be ambassadors to the future leaders of Pakistan, changing one mind and one heart at a time."

Thank you so much,

Kyle Haggmark

We are always in need of help.

 

You too can make a difference. Read how these children, Lezah Winick and Maya Pollack, helped raise money for TBWH last year and did such an incredible job!

The following volunteer positions are available:

PR/Media Volunteer - This person will handle our PSAs and
creatively contact media and others to let people know what we do
and who we help.

Grant Writer - We need someone to research and write grants so
that we can purchase the Teddy Bears we need beyond what we receive as donations throughout the County.

Booth Volunteer - This person assists a TBWH member at one of
our booths passing out information and talking to the general public.

Bear Washer/Repair - We need people to clean bears in their
washing machines and or/repair bears that have seen a little too much love.

Get involved, please contact

What size bears are needed?

Not the size that you would think! We need small bears, around
7 - 9" (about beanie bear size) for police and firemen.

We need medium-sized bears up to 14" for the Children's Court and Voices for Children (CASAs)

We are always in need of new bears for children of all ages as these do not get donated very often. They are used in the hospitals.
