Send Hugs to Saint Louis Children's Cancer Care Center!

Thursday, July 26, 2018

These four cousins are on a BIG mission to send warm, cuddly hugs to kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Last year, you helped us gift 50 children with a sweet book and bear set. This year, we aim to DOUBLE that!

Will you help us?

Did you know that 43 Children are diagnosed with cancer DAILY? 12% of those do not survive. The average age of a child diagnosed with cancer is only 6 years old. That’s the same age as Avaya!

We are on a mission to help raise awareness, funds, and HUGS for kids suffering from childhood cancer. Cuddle Bear is an unforgettable hero with hugs for everyone! Whether you’re feeling sad or lonely, scared or hurt, Cuddle Bear has plenty of hugs to go around. Imagine how comforting it would be to a child to have a book that addresses his or her scary emotions, as well as a sweet plush Cuddle Bear to snuggle?

Throughout the week, the kids will have conversations about the power of a hug, opportunities to practice encouraging someone else, and challenges to put their money where their mouth is by working to contribute a donation they've earned. You'll be able to follow their journey through Facebook!

Would you consider supporting our challenge with a donation of $25 or more? Each $25 donation will provide:
  • A 5% donation to the Scott Carter Cancer Foundation to help eliminate pediatric cancer
  • 1 Cuddle Bear plush toy to a child at St. Louis Children's Hospital
  • 1 Cuddle Bear Book to that same child
  • Plus, Usborne Books & More will match your donation at 50% so that even more children can enjoy Cuddle Bear's hugs!
  • You will also have the option to purchase your set in honor or memory of someone you love.
Our family will pray over the bears together, and then deliver them to Saint Louis Children’s Hospital. We are very grateful for this opportunity and hope you will join us in our DOUBLE challenge! Thank you in advance for your generosity (times two 😉)!
