Here is a list of hospitals & facilities that we plan on donating to for the 2014 Holiday Season. If you have a child who would benefit from a bear that is at another facility, please contact us. We would love to help.

We could not make these donations possible without the help of these wonderful companies and individuals! Please feel free to send us a picture of your child enjoying their bear, or your creating one for them!
