BUY ONE GIVE ONE
When you purchase a Bears For Humanity Teddy Bear, we donate another teddy bear just like it to a child in need. We have partnered with reputable charitable organizations to help put our teddy bears in the hands of those who need the most.
Giving away all these bears to children in need is hard work! To make sure the precious teddy bears get into the right little hands, Bears for Humanity have partnered with a number of reputable charitable organizations. They each bring their own expertise to the process, and ensure that each gifted teddy bear is personally delivered with love and care to just the right child. Whether it’s to children with a life-threatening illness, an underprivileged home, or a needy veteran’s family, our bears end up just where we want them: with someone who could use a smile.
About Bears for Humanity
We love what we do, and only partner with organizations that share our values. We build our bears with love right here in Union City, California, where we train and employ individuals through California’s welfare-to-work program, CalWorks. We believe building a strong community is part of the solution to a sustainable future.
CalWorks, California’s Welfare-to-Work Program
Bears for Humanity has a clear goal, and it starts at home. We are proud to be located in Northern California, creating jobs for our community. Partnered with CalWorks, we are able to provide jobs to at-risk mothers, fathers and caregivers. Learn more at www.cdss.ca.gov/calworks. Our team in Union City California stuff the teddy bears, hand sew the teddy bears, brush and groom the teddy bears, and ship them with love just for you.
Bears for Humanity has partnered with socially conscious manufacturers in China to make the 100% certified organic teddy bear shells. After they are produced, we bring them to California for filling, finishing, assembly and customization. Actions speak louder than words. As a business, we have chosen select manufacturing partners in China who adhere to manufacturing standards, labor rights and human rights. This is not easy. We are not just building certified organic teddy bears - we are building lives, one teddy bear at a time. By incorporating this hybrid model in manufacturing, Bears For Humanity is able to keep the costs down and pass the savings to you - the customer.
