I fell in love with the Joe Joe Bear story so much that I jumped in and started helping whenever, however and where ever I could. Providing teddy bears to children with severe illnesses is really a big deal. To know that a child has something soft and cuddly to squeeze during the scary times of treatment or a parent while their child undergo a procedure touched my heart. These teddy bears provide comfort on so many levels. I’m grateful to be a part of such an amazing nonprofit.

Joe Joe Bear Foundation is touching the lives of children with life threatening illness's in hospitals with Teddy Bears. This provides comfort to not only the children but to the parents as well (seeing a smile on their child's face in such difficult times). I have worked with and helped Joe Joe Bear since 2012. I am grateful and honored to assist them. The leadership and mission of this organization is amazing. Such a wonderful and worthy cause!!

My son was having a Bone Marrow Biopsy and Joe Joe Bear was there... giving him a wonderful bear to hold while in recovery and also following up with us to make sure that he was okay... what a wonderful organization. It is obvious that this is a personal mission by the people involved.

Joe Joe Bear Foundation is a strong Non-Profit with great purpose, vision and dedicated leadership. As a single parent of two beautiful healthy children, I could not begin to imagine how difficult it would be on a child or their family under going treatment for like threatening illnesses. What this foundation does is an effort to increased the quality of life for both the child and family by use of Teddy bears. In many cases a stuff animal can be one of the most comforting items in a child's life. Joe Joe Bear Foundation is doing a remarkable job!

I have been part of this organization for over 5 years since it was founded. In that time they have give out over 14,000 new teddy bears to children with life threatening illnesses to hold when they are scared and alone in the hospital. What a joy it is to see the smile on the faces of sick children when they get their bear.
