This is a charity started by The Joe Joe Bear Foundation was created in memory of Joseph David Ordaz who passed away on March 10, 2009 from Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. They collect new teddy bears for children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses and then deliver them to local hospitals. These bears are for the children to hold when they are scared and lonely since their families may not be able to be with them 24/7.
All of our bears need to be new due to the fact that these children may have weakened or no immune systems as a result of the treatment or from their illness itself.
This is a charity started by Kathleen Evertsen, in memory of her son Alexander, who died on March 16, 2006 of Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. Alex was only 6 1/2 weeks old. Their mission is to provide teddy bears (through donations) to every child undergoing heart surgery; and/or, to the parents or siblings of the child as comfort.
This is a camp for kids with many different kinds of illnesses. It is located in North Carolina and was started by Kyle and Pattie Petty, and Paul Newman.
