“Warming hearts & souls one bear at a time"

 I am thrilled that my creations will find lots of love and hugs and I have been in search of a charity that fits my bears......I believe things happen for a reason, and I have struggled finding the right charity, because I was waiting for Blankets & Bears to come along

It wasn't by chance that Blankets & Bears was formed 11 years ago, and we have brought happiness to thousands of special children. I believe things happen for a reason, and people come into your life the same way. I recently searched for the "perfect little bear" that was easy to hold and needed a child to call it's own. I found Robin Eppard on Esty and have since then formed a partnership. Please welcome her and all the amazing bears to our organization!

The red carpet treatment begins in the afternoon, with helping the children locate their own personal bed, and continues with games, entertainment, pizza, gifts, popcorn and a movie. Breakfast will be served the next morning as Ashley loads up the beds for delivery to their homes.

Share our “Hope to Dream” event with others so they too can be involved and show their support. Volunteer your time before, during and after the event. There are many things you can help with.
