Thank you to everyone who participated in giving back to the Orlando community this year. We collected more than 50 hardcover books for Bears Who Care! These books will be delivered, along with a new plush teddy bear, to children in need. We’d also like to thank all of you who stopped by and talked with the Bears Who Care staff and made a lasting connection we hope will make a difference to many children in the Orlando area.
Founded in 2008, the Bears Who Care mission is to promote reading by helping children who are underprivileged, ill or facing any other major challenges in life. Bears Who Care has worked to establish a powerful connection between reading and caring, which will benefit those in a true time of need and leave a legacy for future generations. It provides a teddy bear and hardcover book to the children in hospitals and churches. The teddy bears and books are purchased new and donated with no financial restitution expected in return. Bears Who Care is funded solely through donations.
