A Hugs For Hope online fundraiser helps fund our early support initiative – our bear giving program. Each bear of hope will be donated in honour of the baby you are remembering and acknowledging.
Through our Bear of Hope and support literature, we aim to comfort, acknowledge, empower, and guide families from within days of their loss. 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 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.
