"Thinking like bears of action" we have started a teddy bear distribution program supplying toys and smiles to children in need in KwaZulu Natal, the poorest province of South Africa.

We work with several excellent organizations to distribute the bears to needy children.  We have been able to distribute these bears through the Massachusetts General Hospital Global Health residents traveling abroad to work in foreign clinics.  Through a very generous startup donation from the Build-a-Bear Workshop, we have been able to supply many teddies to children in need.

  • Doris Goodwin TB Hospital
  • McCord's Hospital 
  • Ummdeni Care Program
