Our Giftees

Teddy bears rank high on the list in bringing smiles and "warm fuzzies" to the injured child, the lonely, and the needy of all ages. Medical experts, paramedics, police officers, and firemen around the world will testify to the healing and comforting power these stuffed animals possess.

We average over 14,000 giftings per year to shelters, emergency personnel, hospitals, hospice, and more. The over 60 regular recipients of “bear giftings” include local police and fire departments, hospitals, and other needy Bay Area groups who can help distribute bear hugs to those who need one. In addition, stuffed hugs go around the United States and the World, thanks to dedicated members and supporters.
