Gold Star Family Recipients
I am in contact with Gold Star Families who have lost a loved one while in military service. As of January 2019, you may choose to purchase a bear to offer to a Gold Star family member, I will wrap, ship and personalize the gift, expressing your thanks for the service and sacrifice made by their fallen hero. This option is available at check out in the boutique.
Breast Cancer Prevention and Recovery
In 2010, I began making Breast Cancer Awareness and Breast Cancer Recovery Bears. A portion of the proceeds from these bears go to various cancer research groups and events. My past study and career as a Holistic Health Practitioner brought me close to many brave men and women who had been effected by cancer in various forms. Many were my clients and my award in that field was bringing them relief, if only for an hour from their pain, worry and suffering. Sadly, some are not with us today.
So, in some small way, I hope my bears can contribute and continue my intent from my past career in the form of proceeds, awareness and perhaps a bit of comfort.
