THANK YOU ALL FOR AN AMAZING DONATION YEAR

2015 found Bennett's Bears to be the busiest and most rewarding year we have had to date. Our amazing donors and large corporations that have chosen us as their vessel to give back has produced thousands of smiles on the faces of ill children. Without your support we could not make that happen. So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you, and we hope to have your support again in 2016 to help share the joy.                   

                                                            -Brandelyn Nester
