Thanks to Chris Ellis for posting information on The Teddy Bear Brigade. As Chris said “The Teddy Bear Brigade receives and distributes new and gently “loved” stuffed animals to provide children in need with comfort, security and love.”
What a great organization! Because of new regulations, most U.S. based charities no longer accept toys, including stuffed animals, for donation. So where do you find new homes for those new or gently used fuzzies? Check outThe Teddy Bear Brigade.
From their website:
“The Teddy Bear Brigade partners with individuals, churches, schools, businesses, non-profits and humanitarian organizations to collect new and gently loved stuffed animals in order to bring comfort and security to children in need around the world. The simple gift of a stuffed animal can make such an amazing difference in the life of a child hurt by poverty, abandonment, disease, natural disaster and war.
Anyone can participate in The Teddy Bear Brigade whether it be just cleaning out your closet, hosting a stuffed animal collection, telling others about The Teddy Bear Brigade, volunteering at the GFTW warehouse to sort, clean and pack stuffed animals, or financially sponsoring a shipment or project.
