Bears Of Hope aim to comfort, acknowledge, empower, and inform families within the first couple of days of their loss with an exclusive Bear of Hope and support literature. Initiating support to families at this crucial time is the difference between parents leaving the hospital with or without any regrets, with or without support, and provides them with invaluable guidance before and after they leave the hospital without their precious baby.

 

Each bear of hope is donated in memory of a family's dearly loved baby. This allows the donating family to give their child's brief life a purpose and lasting legacy, whilst filling the empty arms of another family as they walk out of the hospital without their baby. Bears Of Hope donate bears and support packages, at no cost to hospitals and families within Australia, immmediatey putting them in touch with our leading Beyond the Bear Support Services.

 

For every $100 you raise, a bear of hope will be donated in memory of a baby you hold dear to your heart. The baby's name and date of birth (if you wish) will be included in each card attached to the bear of hope. The remaining funds will be used towards our objectives including but not limited to providing support packages, counselling, workshops, fundraising and community events, psychologists, support groups and hospital in-services. Photos of the bears will be emailed through as a keepsake for you. You will also be provided with a Certificate of Appreciation. 

 

"I want to thank you so much for the Bears of Hope Package that I received at the hospital. I can’t even begin to put into words the gratitude I have for your organisation and for the little bear I received. Your organisation and generosity made an unbelievable difference to me when I was at my most vulnerable. The package and bear made me feel part of a community and reminded me that I wasn’t alone. You gave me something to hold onto throughout the night in hospital after surgery and a bear that reminds me of my little one who I will treasure forever. I will forever appreciate your kindness and generosity." Georgina
