A Lifetime Of Support

Bears Of Hope aim to make contact with parents in the very early days of their loss to offer support and guidance during the most crucial time of their loss. Donating a bear of hope to parents, before they leave the hospital and even directly if a parent did not receive one this way, has proven to be an effective, comforting gesture where the parents have expressed their gratitude for the timely acknowledgement and support of their loss.

We are thankful for all our affiliated allied health services including public and private hospitals, Ivf clinics, Doctors and Obstetricians who pass on our support resources to parents before they leave the hospital. Being able to provide our love and support, build instant parent connections and provide a special way for staff to engage in a such a heartbreaking situation with gentle guidance and compassion, has been of utmost importance to the success of our program

Each Bear Of Hope is donated in memory of another family's baby. The name of this precious baby is written on the inside of the attached bear card. Not only are our bears of hope breaking down the barriers of silence, but they are providing lifelong comfort and are putting parents in touch with our highly informative website alleviating much time and stress once they leave the hospital. We give parents a place to start.

If you did not receive a bear of hope after the loss of your baby and would like to receive one, please contact us.

Special Dates

You might like to consider purchasing and donating a Bears Of Hope Gift Package each year on your baby's (or a friend's angel's) Birthday, Anniversary, for Christmas, Easter, Mother's or Father's Day, or during October - International Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month.

In Lieu Of Flowers

Parents may like to arrange for family and friends to purchase a Bears Of Hope Gift Package in lieu of flowers. These are then donated in honour of this baby to our hospitals to help other families. Perhaps you might like to hold an online Hugs For Hope Fundraiser. This is all done online and is a very easy way to receive donations towards bears of hope. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
