Teddy Bears with Heart was founded in 2008 by Susan Hanson in Monterey California. We are under the 501 c3 umbrella of Good Bears of the World. To visit their wonderful new site and learn more about this wonderful international bear giving organization visit www.goodbearsoftheworld.org . Our mission is to gift teddy bears to first responders and agencies that work with children in crisis, the forgotten elderly and the terminally ill. We can only do this through the generosity of our community. We have been able to gift over 45,000 bears in seven years! How many bears do you think the seven hospitals and 195 agencies we gift to need in a year? Did you guess 84,000? That would be right!
We are working our way towards that number and the only way we’ll be able to bring comfort to those in need is by the people in our community becoming involved. Either by donating bears, their time or their money.
