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.
