Typically, when puschasing an item online, you are asked for your name, credit card and perhaps an option to join the mailing list. When you purchase a teddy bear from Bears For Humanity™, you have the delightful task of choosing a charity – because your purchase instantly doubles as a gift for a child in need!
More than that, the cuddly pal is personally delivered to a needy veteran’s house, a children’s hospital or an underprivileged household. The stuffed bears come in two sizes – 16” Premium Bear ($39.99) and 7” Baby Bear (19.99). The many charity options and five color choices are splashed across www.BearsForHumanity.com website that opens to a philosophical question – Can A Teddy Bear Change The World?
Toy industry experts, the California welfare-to-work program known as CalWORKs and an armful of mom bloggers heartily shout, “Yes!” The benefits only begin with the buy one-donate one model. The bears are luxuriously soft! Bears For Humanity pals are the only 100% Certified Organic Cotton/ Hemp teddy bears in the world. Plus, they are naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic which gives parents the peace of mind they don't get from polyester plush toys!
· Made in the USA, giving jobs to those who need one through CalWORKs in Northern California
· Made of certified organic cotton and hemp, so naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, so you can feel great giving this to your child

My ThoughtsI first have to say, this is a really nice bear. I was super impressed when I opened the box and found the bear. It was extremely well made, so soft, and just high quality. As I looked the bear over, I couldn't help but be even more impressed with this company. Not only did I get such a great bear, but it was also sent to a charity of my choice. I had a bear sent to Lucille's Childrens Hospital, and I hope it gave a child as much as a smile as I got when I saw my bear.
This company has taken the time with these bears to not only assure good quality, but have also made sure how they make the bears is beneficial. They are made with 100% certified organic cotton and hemp. There is no polyester in these, and also hypoallergenic and antibacterial. When you purchase a bear and then have it sent to the charity of your choice, you can feel confidant that whatever issue a child might have, they will be okay with this bear.
As I mentioned, the quality of this bear surpassed what I thought I would be getting. The legs move from sitting to standing. The arms are on tight. The bear is soft and squishy and the right size for a child to hug in their arms.
This is not only a great bear, but a great cause to keep in mind with this upcoming holiday season.
