Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health, Patient & Family Support

Mission: WE provide support to children and young adults with cancer and other serious illnesses through gifting of dolls, original books, cards and other gifts.

Results: We have gifted thousands of dolls to children in treatment for cancer and have had hospital events for these children. WE partner with over 30 hospitals now. We ship in the USA and internationally to any child battling cancer free. We are in the process of writing and illustrating an adventure Bee Brave Buddies book for children with Cancer which will be given as a gift also to these children. When a child receives one of our dolls, we see big smiles on their faces, consequently, we then see big smiles on the faces of the mom and dad and all caregivers, nurses, and doctors.

Target demographics: We want to give every child who is battling cancer a special gift for support and to aid in self -esteem.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We have gifted thousands of dolls in 2016. We are now shipping our dolls to every state in the USA and internationally free to any child batting childhood cancer. They simply have to fill out a nomination form on our website to request a doll or our new UnBEElieveably Brave Blanket

Geographic areas served: We gift our Beautifully bald dolls to children with cancer around the world

Programs: We give our beautifully bald dolls to any family with a child in treatment for cancer. They can request a doll on our web page by filling out a form. We partner with pediatric cancer treatment centers around the country and give our dolls monthly to these hospitals. Our dolls are sewn and given with a lot of LOVE!

Bee Brave Buddies endlessly and selflessly gives to those that need it the most, children who are fighting cancer. Each Bee Brave Buddy is made with love and gives the child comfort, something to snuggle with, and someone to tell their fears to. In other words, Bee Brave Buddies gives each child a friend....and there is nothing better. What a wonderful gift Bee Brave Buddies is :-D!

Lets start with this, I pretty much have the coolest job. I get to coordinate events and donations at Florida Hospital for Children and make kids smile every single day. However, I wouldn't be able to do this if it wasn't for our community donors. Our donors from the community is what helps us do our job and help us provide all of these amazing resources for our brave little kiddos. Bee Brave Buddies is such an amazing organization. They help remind our hospitalized children that they are still a child and help in the process of normalizing their environment. They allow these kids to have a "buddy" that they can use for play, cuddles, and even take back into surgery. These dolls really make a difference! Thank you for sending your "buddies" to help brighten our patients days.

Bee Brave Buddies is one of the most charitable organizations I've come across. The children truly love the dolls, and the founder, Rosanna Bernstein, truly loves what she does. I've seen photos of the children interacting with their dolls, and I've seen video testimony of how much the dolls have done for families going through one of their toughest tests in life.

Bee Brave Buddies is an amazing charitable organization with a heart dedicated to seriously ill children. Children who are facing childhood cancer are often all too familiar with the scary unknowns that accompany this horrid disease. Bee Brave Buddies provides them a companion to join them in their fight. Adorable, bald, and of course, very brave, these seemingly simple dolls are a precious companion to children who need a hand to hold, and a brave buddy by their side. Started by a cancer survivor, this amazing organization touches those who are most vulnerable, providing a measure of emotional comfort in the form of a lovable Bee Brave Buddy.

I have watched Bee Brave Buddies from its inception. During this time, I have seen numerous children with childhood cancer have not just smiles, but BIG BRAVE SMILES on their faces when they received their new best friend. These dolls join each one of the children giving them that new found hope and pleasure on a daily basis. This non profit is not just GREAT, it is a tremendous tribute to children who need a new best friend they can hug, cuddle, love and talk to. My motto is "Give a smile, Get a Smile" and Bee Brave Buddies does that for children worldwide and much more!
