I'm not sure what happened. What I am sure of it it's hard to get back on track but I … [Read more...]

Give a Gift that Gives Back with Bears for Humanity

Annie Bear

Ever since I was a little kid I can remember having a love for stuffed animals. I would line them up, one by one, in my bed while waiting for my dad to come in and tuck me in for the night. Each animal was just as special to me as the next and each had their own unique story. Christmas, Easter, birthdays; I had a bear for each. In my eyes these stuffed toys, my bears especially, were a sign of security and love and I slept with them well into my … [Read more...]
