I am raising money to safely deliver brand new GUND teddy bears to long term care residents in Canada who are isolated during the COVID-19 pandemic.
My heart aches every time I hear stories about long term care residents who are still isolated.
Too often, the elderly live forgotten. My parents, who have both since passed in long term care, loved their bears.
Long term care is a very special place full of all kinds of heroes and loved ones (both caregivers and residents).
I have been asking myself every day, how can we help? There was one idea that wouldn’t go away and here we are!
This campaign goal amount will fund a pilot project for one facility. The goal is to send as many teddy bears to as many Canadians as we can during COVID-19. The goal amount will be increased as long term care facilities request bears.
