In personal life and through business, I have always been a huge proponent of social good causes. Whether I am supporting them myself and with my family, through my business, or supporting them through other businesses. There are many causes out there that deserve our attention, but some just really pull on your heartstrings. One such cause, and company that has always been one I like to support is Bears for Humanity.
They have not only been a proponent of social good from the time they opened their doors, it is the main driving force for the company. Not to mention, the bears are hand sewn, stuffed and finished here in the USA by women and at-risk mothers and fathers from welfare to work program. They are safe and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)certified organic and ethically sourced based on fair trade principles.
We all shop, we all buy gifts, but how often do we see a company who donates to children in need with every single purchase? When you purchase a teddy bear from Bears For Humanity, your purchase instantly doubles as a gift for a child in need! The cuddly pal is personally delivered to a needy veteran’s house, a children’s hospital or an underprivileged household. And as if that wasn’t already enough of a reason to buy one of these unique and cuddly bears, this year they are taking it to another level!
Now, Rite Aid has teamed up with Bears for Humanity. Cream, pink, and brown organic teddy bears will be sold at more than 3,800 Rite Aid stores in 31 states across the country with $1 from every purchase going back to your local member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The money raised will help fund pediatric medical services, groundbreaking research and purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment that not only saves lives but also improves the lives of millions of children each year.
