How Many Bears Should We Donate?
Some troops gave several hundred bears. Some of the smaller and younger troops collected 5-25 animals per troop. Every effort counts!
Where Do the Bears Go?
These animals went to children in hospitals, trauma centers, shelters, the Courts and Human Services,court and many more. This year, we will be adding over 900 homeless children and 200 children adopted by CRF working with the Drug Enforcement Agency.
What is the purpose of the hearts and the names on each one?
The hearts are a universal symbol of unconditional love. Feedback from children comes in the form of cards made from hearts. The names are a personalized way for children to say to another child “We cared enough to make this special.” Kids Empowering Kids.
Can my troop deliver? Do they see the children in person?
Children in family crisis often are embarrassed about their situation, so often prefer not to see those who donate. Delivering to organizations with your troop provides a smile from the receiver to the children, so your troop is acknowledged in person for their kindness.

This site was designed to educate families affected by domestic violence about choices, tools and self-accountability for their own behavior. Our mission is to expand the awareness of domestic violence through education, outreach and referral services found throughout this site. Granting wishes to families and children impacted by violence since 1999.
Throughout the year we are always in need of physical and financial assistance for the more than 15,000 children we serve.
In 2005, we expanded our services to include children affected by transition and homelessness to provide for specific needs for their survival and for them to thrive in their community. If you wish to donate goods, please see our page on donations.
