Dr. Mary Ann Markey’s previous experience and research as a psychologist and expert in intra-family violence, aggression, domestic violence and intra-family homicide, indicated that all ages of children are likely to benefit from possessing and interacting with a teddy bear as “someone” who is always there for them; “someone” to talk to and confide in; “someone” to hold and hug.

By 2022, we are projecting to add at least 1200 more teddy bears to the number that we are currently giving to abused, neglected, abandoned and homeless children. Thank you for helping to fund our vision to provide more than 600 children annually with an unlimited supply of teddy bear hugs and snuggles.
