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.

“My husband and I decided to start a fundraiser in May for Bears Of Hope in memory of our little Grace, lost at 18 weeks gestation. Before Grace, we lost another little baby and have since lost another. It’s a pain no-one deserves to go through and Bears Of Hope were there for us right in the thick of it all. With the help of friends, families and total strangers, we were able to raise over $1400 for this amazing charity that provides such important support for bereaved families. All these little bears going out to other families in memory of Grace gives us hope that other families can be comforted by her memory and become stronger through their grief.” Grace’s Mum, Emily
