Bear Hugs for Children in Need
Give a bear hug to a child in need!
KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, is one of many places in Africa with a sad preponderance of children being raised in orphanages after losing both parents to AIDS. They, and children who are in the hospital for serious illnesses, are desperately in need of something to hug any hour of the day or night -- something like a lovingly built bear to call their very own.
Our "Bear Hugs for Children in Need" Gift That Gives More™ builds a fuzzy, overstuffed bear in the United States and distributes it to a South African child being cared for in a hospital or an AIDS orphanage.
Bears Without Borders is a 501(c)(3) U.S. nonprofit dedicated to the delivery of toys and other materials for the benefit of children worldwide. The organization was founded by two graduate students at Harvard University and MIT in honor of their wedding in order to share the joy they felt with others.
