What do you do?
When did you start the business and why?
What hospital do the teddy bears go to?All the donated teddy bears will go to comfort children in University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital (UNMCH). It is our state’s only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital and also a trauma center for a five state area. As a result UNMCH takes care of over 60,000 children each year.
Do you offer any other services besides giving teddy bears as gifts?Yes, I do. At the request of a parent whose son was stillborn, I created a way for parents to help cope with the grief of losing a child by giving relatives and friends a way to donate teddy bears to children in the hospital in the name of the child who died. It’s called the Teddy Bear Legacy and it helps not only the children in the hospital feel better, but also those who are donating the teddy bears – a donation that makes a difference. For more information on the Teddy Bear Legacy, visit our Teddy Bear Legacy page.
