Thank you so beary much!

Thank you so beary much!

Heart-warming social posts from parents whose children have received a The Kids' Cancer Project Bear. 

Since 2009, tonnes of cuddly teds have been donated anonymously to children in hospital through The Kids’ Cancer Project Bear Program.

Generous donors ensure that staff working in the 70 participating hospitals around Australia have a huge cache of bears at the ready to bring comfort to sick kids when they’re lonely or anxious about their treatment.

But that’s not all. This is a program with a double whammy - proceeds of all bear sales go toward childhood cancer research to help the 950 Australian kids diagnosed with the disease every year.

Due to privacy laws, donors aren’t able to be connected with the child who receives the bear they have kindly donated, however many parents get in touch with The Kids’ Cancer Project on social media to thank the generous souls and share how meaningful the gift is. Here are a few of those recent posts.

“These bears are great, not just for the little kids but the big ones too who are going through a really rough time. It’s the little things that make a difference. My son has such a long road ahead of him. Thanks for all the donations that are made!” – Shelly T
