A Hugs For Hope online fundraiser funds our early support initiative – our bear giving program. Each bear of hope will be donated to a family in honour of the baby you are remembering.
Through our Bear of Hope and support resources, we aim to comfort, acknowledge, empower, and guide families from within days of their loss and beyond. Initiating support to families at this time is crucial and the difference between parents leaving the hospital with or without any regrets and with or without any support. These resources provide them with an instant connection to a community ready for them to lean on before and after they leave the hospital without their precious baby.
For every $50 you raise, a bear of hope will be donated in honour of a baby special to you, to support another family. The baby’s name and date of birth (if you wish) will be included in each card attached to the bear of hope. Photos of the bears will be emailed through as a keepsake for you.
The majority of our bears are donated with a support package, however there are times our bears are also sent individually to hospitals and families.
