Project Teddy Bear & Friends received some great last-minute donations in 2016, and the River Current included pictures of the donations in the latest edition. Check it out today! Can't wait to see where we finish up for donations in 2016 before getting started on 2017!
As for 2017's donations, we're in the process of making a wishing well for future donations. Phase one is complete. Making it look like a stone well is in progress. Then, we need to 3-D the roof and buy gray paint for the well part. Hopefully be a fun way to do some fundraising for The Teddy Bear Den.
I am excited to have a group from CRSI coming to help put prayer tags on the stuffed animals in January. Because some helpers won't be able to tie the tags, I will tie the tag with a ribbon onto a big rubber band for them ahead of time. Project Teddy Bear is so grateful for their help because there have been record amounts of donations coming in recently and there is lots that still need done before the donated items can be redistributed to the children.
Project Teddy Bear & Friends only needs 1,231 more stuffed animals to beat the third highest yearly record set in 2010. Can we do it?

Check out the video and picture slideshow below from our Kentucky Ministry yearly outreach. The Teddy Bear Lady went with Spirit Of Truth Ministries to Belfry, Kentucky for their yearly giveaway for over 400 children. It was so special seeing the love spread to over 400 kids. Met some great people and it was a wonderful experience. God bless these people for all their hard work through out the year!
The ones on the left were dropped off this weekend. The ones on the right dropped off last week. Do you think I am as busy as Santa Clause? I love my calling!
Project Teddy Bear & Friends had 364 stuffed animal donations for the month of November, and in the first weekend in December - 229!
