Bears That Care
It is part of every Teddy Bear’s nature to give you hugs when needed, provide courage when you need strength and dry your tears with warm smiles. This is what we mean when we say love is in the Bear. We take our Bears and their responsibilities very seriously, which is why we created the Bears That Care program. While we never underestimate the awesome power of a Bear hug, the Teddy Bears in our Bears That Care program go the extra step by bringing awareness and support to organizations that do amazing work.
Limb Loss & Limb Different Bear
Working closely with the Amputee Coalition, we designed these Bears to bring comfort, joy and love. We are proud to say that now we have Teddy Bears for everybody and every body.
Little Hero® Bear
Every time a Little Hero Bear is purchased, we donate a second one to a first-responder unit. This ensures that kids get a Bear hug when they need it most: during crisis situations.
Make-A-Wish® Vermont and Vermont Teddy Bear
For over three years we have been partnering with Make-A-Wish® Vermont to help grant wishes to Vermont children with life-threatening medical conditions. From hosting annual fundraising events to auctioning off One-Of-A-Kind Bears to sending wish kids on their trips with a Teddy Bear friend in tow, we thank them for letting us be a part of their amazing foundation.
Love to the rescue® Bear
Mascot, hug deliverer and fundraiser all in one! Also known as Fezzy, our Love to the rescue® Bear helps raise awareness for all 22 non-profit Shriners Hospitals for Children. Plus, each time Fezzy is purchased, 20% of the proceeds are donated directly to Shriners.
American Legion Bear
The American Legion’s tireless work for veterans is critical. Every time an American Legion Bear is purchased, 20% of the proceeds are donated directly to The American Legion.
True Colors United
Co-founded by Cyndi Lauper, True Colors United works nationally to end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth.
The Vermont Farm Bureau®
It’s no surprise that we love all things farm in Vermont and that is why we are excited to introduce you to not one, but two Teddy Bears that support the Vermont Farm Bureau.
The American Heart Association
Since 1924, the American Heart Association has been giving families the gift of more time together, and we are excited to announce that we will be helping them in their efforts. 20% of each American Heart Bear will go towards supporting their mission.
The USS VERMONT
The VERMONT (SSN-792) Commissioning Committee is proud to collaborate with the Vermont Teddy Bear Company to create limited-edition Bears marking the acceptance of the USS VERMONT—the newest Virginia-class fast attack submarine—into the U.S. Navy! A portion of sales profits will help pay for the traditional events, activities and gifts associated with the commissioning, which marks the beginning of Vermont’s active service.
