Touching the hearts of children across the world! 

Knitted and crocheted bears - voluntarily made by creative and generous people - are being donated in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe, North America and South America.  The bears are reaching remote villages, orphanages and, hospitals where children are undergoing medical tests or treatments.

It is our hope that these small and easy-to-make toys will touch the hearts of many and provide joy to all.
