Here at Swoozie's we're a big fan of shopping for a cause. We frequently work with non-profit organizations ---whether we're selling their products in our stores, or we're holding shopping events where we donate a portion of our proceeds to their mission. While we have developed strong relationships with organizations we've worked with for years, we're still always on the lookout for exciting, new groups doing amazing things. That's why we were thrilled when we heard about Bears for Humanity.
Bears for Humanity is a group that provides teddy bears to children in need. The organization represents a One for One model: When you buy one Bears for Humanity bear, one is donated to an underprivileged child. Customers have the option to choose the organization their donation bear goes to, such as Toys for Tots or One Simple Wish.
Bears for Humanity bears are also unique because they're made with organic, all natural ingredients. They are the ONLY 100% Certified Organic Cotton/Hemp teddy bear in the world. Plus, they are antibacterial which gives parents the peace of mind they don't get from polyester plush toys!
As if we couldn't love this organization more, they also employ at-risk mothers through a work program called CalWorks, in their factory in California. How could you not want to support this incredible organization?
