Would you recommend Teddy Bears That Care Program, Inc.?

by sara g. (June 14, 2010)
I was helped by this organization after going through a traumatic experience. I was given a bear by a social worker, and even though I was 17 at the time, I really appreciated it. I am still in the process of healing, but this bear has gotten me through a lot of terrible times, and continues to help me through rough times. I hope I can volunteer with this organization some day.
