More Than Teddy Bears

Our mission is to provide personalized bears to law enforcement and all first responders. Far too often they are called out to traumatic cases that involve children in our communities. With our bears, we are giving them the ability to provide comfort to children when they are at the darkest point in their lives. We are providing hope and love to a child, one teddy bear at a time.

Providing to Children Who Need It Most

Our first responders are some of the best people you'll meet, but they have to deal with some of the worst events in everyday life. Worse yet is when these events impact the lives of innocent children. Here at Because We Care, we are raising money to help first responders give these kids something more—something that inspires hope when it can't be found anywhere else. These generous donations from the community go towards providing police officers and first responders with teddy bears, which are used to help children cope with difficult situations. If you'd like to be a part of this cause, please contact us today.
