Whilst browsing through Gumtree.com, I found this add. It seemed like a really awesome idea, so I thought I would post about it for all to see.


This is a call to all teddy bears and stuffed animals. I need your help.

For Christmas, my personal goal is to have as many smiles as possible from chidren in need of cheering up. That is ill children, terminally ill children, abused children and those less fortunate.

So far, I have gathered 52 stuff animals. I am begging you for more. This is for a really good cause and there is nothing better on Christmas morning to know that there will be loads of children smiling because you helped them from the goodness of your heart.

Please give a helping hand! The more teddy animals, the more smiles.

Thanks alot and looking forward to your teddies!

I used to work with a lady who spent all year knitting toys, then every Christmas she would give them all to the local hospital. Everyone loved them!

Usually the shopping malls here have a gift tree. A tag with a needy child's age, sex and vague want (toy, clothes, bear, etc.) hangs on the tree. You go, buy the child's gift, tag it with the tag from the tree, and return it to the charity organization that put up the tree. It's a neat idea.

There's also the Teddy Bear toss. One of the hockey teams (Calgary Hitmen) here in Alberta has fans bring a new bear to the arena and after the first goal by the home team the bears are tosses out on to the ice. All the bears go to charity. They usually get a zamboni full.
