Good News Bears is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Livermore, California. Founded in 1996 with the mission to provide teddy bears to hurt, traumatized, or abused children as well as adults. We distribute "stuffed love" - teddy bears and other stuffed critters to children and adults suffering illness, loss, trauma, or loneliness. We average over 14,000 giftings per year to shelters, emergency personnel, hospitals, hospice, and more. Our animals will travel around the world to comfort those in need. Approximately 93% of donations goes into purchasing critters to gift.
