Join Snuggle #ShareABear Movement
Snuggle has been celebrating for the month of September for National Teddy Bear Month by partnering up with Random Acts, a non-profit organization, to help brighten the days of children in need. Teddy Bears are known for their soft, cuddly features and they are usually gifted to make the recipient feel safe and secure. My kids have a huge collection of Teddy Bears and last month we give bears they were no longer using to a shelter.
Do you remember your first teddy bear? Mines was a little brown bear that kept me safe during storms and helped me deal with a death in our family. My daughter received her first before she was even born it was a Classic Pooh that was gifted at my baby shower. Snuggle is spreading joy and brightening people’s day through the simple, heartfelt act of giving away teddy bears through #ShareABear. Snuggle is encouraging everyone to take part in the #ShareABear movement by sharing a photo, video or story of you and a special teddy bear in your life. As part of the movement, Snuggle will donate 5,000 bears through Random Acts.
To kick off the effort, Snuggle surprised some special friends with a snuggly act of kindness – https://youtu.be/OLylfnfAsqI, sharing teddy bears to help celebrate his favorite holiday and to encourage others to #ShareABear.
