OTC collects Teddy Bears for hospitalized children. These children have life-threatening illnesses. Some will never leave the hospital. If you would like your bears to go to this cause, mark your shipping box "Hospitals."
There are a number of police and fire departments in America requesting small Teddy Bears to be given to scared or injured kids at accident, fire, or crime scenes. If you would like your bears to go to this cause, mark your shipping box "Emergencies."
We try to keep 1,000 Teddy Bears on hand so when disaster strikes, they can be shipped out immediately to disaster counselors. If you can help, mark your shipping box "Disaster Bears." They will be "first-responders" in the event of another manmade or natural disaster.
With new deployments to Afghanistan, we are getting regular requests for Teddy Bears for the children of deploying parents. We also provide certificates of appreciation that thank the kids for being "brave and helpful at home." We need Teddy Bears and shipping funds to continue this effort!!!!!
