From Charlestown To CalWORKs, One Toy Company Is Changing The World–With Certified Organic Cotton/Hemp Teddy Bears.
We are family that loves to give back, pay it forward, make a person smile. We are also a family that falls in love with teddy bears. The girls get it from me. If you ask my parents, they will tell you that I treated my bears growing up as true friends. I still have a lot of them and can not imagine growing up without one. That is why I am so touched to be able to share with you Bears for HumanityNot only do they have the sweetest bears out there, but for every one you buy, one is donated to someone who should never ever not have a teddy bear!
Toy industry experts, the California welfare-to-work program known as CalWORKs and an armful of mom bloggers heartily shout, “Yes!” The benefits only begin with the buy one-donate one model. The bears are luxuriously soft! Bears For Humanity pals are the only 100% Certified Organic Cotton/ Hemp teddy bears in the world. Plus, they are naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic which gives parents the peace of mind they don’t get from polyester plush toys!
I am in love with this idea and now in love with my two little bears. Every time I see one of my children love on their Made in America 16″ or 7″ bears, I know that somewhere, a veteran, a child or an elderly person who may not have anyone else are snuggling theirs too.
As a child, I did not have teddy bears until I was 8 years old. My birth family could not even afford food, much less a toy. If someone had delivered one of these sweet, cuddly bears, the nights of hunger pangs interrupting sleep might not have felt so lonely.
The charities that get these Made in America do so much good in our communities! When you Buy a Bears for Humanity, you automatically Give One: when you buy a bear, the company gifts the same bear to a child in need through one of six charities the company partners with: Toys for Tots, Expect Miracles Foundation, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, One Simple Wish, Save the Children and Semper Fi.
As an added feel-good bonus, Bears for Humanity are giving jobs to those who need one through CalWORKs Welfare to Work program in Northern California, employing women and at-risk mothers. And, to make the mommy in me happy, they are made of certified organic cotton and hemp, so naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, so you can feel safe giving this to your child.
For less than you would buy a conventional bear in a toy store, you can make two people very very happy for the price of one. Your child and someone else’s, who may be getting their very first toy ever, or getting a friend to help them through a really, really tough time.
So now it is your turn! Not only will the winner of the Bears for Humanity be getting and giving at the same time, but you can go to the Bears for Humanity Amazon page and get one too. For so little you can make such a HUGE difference!
