Bears Who Care – A Book, A Bear, and A Heart to Share

Bears Who Care, a new Central Florida charity, provides comfort and promotes literacy to children by giving them teddy bears and books. The organization is designed to help children in need who are between the ages of one and 12. Whether the child’s hardship is illness, injury or financial difficulty, the goal is the same – to engage their imaginations, temporarily relieve pain and bring them comfort. www.bearswhocare.org
