No matter what age you are, you will always remember the teddy bear you had when you were young. This is why we were more than happy to give bears to Kool Kids Passaic so that they could visit Complete Care at Passaic County and spread cheer and comfort to all grandmas, grandpaws, and seniors. But it’s not just the seniors that benefit! The young participants went home feeling just as good after spreading happiness to others. Some even said they wished they could have spent more time with each patient, others were extra excited to give away their bear, and even those who initially thought they would feel uneasy in a nursing home found joy in the experience!
This is exactly what we strive for at Bear Givers, not just spreading joy to others, but also promoting the power of giving and the joy it sparks in yourself.
