As many know, my home town was destroyed by a twin set of ef4 tornadoes on June 16 ... Today, I went to visit the volunteers working handing out donations, and one of them handed my 3 year old son a teddy bear .. Reality hit me, that my town and everything i had grown up with was gone. I was overwhelmed seeing how many people have really come together to help Pilger and the surrounding areas. My aunt's house was completely destroyed, and my 3 year old tried building her a new one out of legos. he was devastated. i don't think you really understand how much just this simple teddy bear meant to him. thank you, from him, from me, and from all residents of the area. <3

My family and i are forever grateful to the comfort that this organization brings. We were presented with the bears during a very tragic loss in our family and community. I see my bear everyday, it hurts to see its reminder less and less, because its slowly being replaced by the unbelievable love that has literally come from so many beautiful people. Thank you for changing lives!

Thank you so much for sending bears to our children at Chardon High School. It is amazing how a little stuffed animal can bring so much comfort during a tragic time. Both of my children were in the high school at the time of the shooting and knowing how people all over the country care, brings tears of happiness. Thank you again. Kathy

Thank you for the bears and lifting the kids spirits up! The smiles that I love to see are returning to many faces (especially coming up with a name for the bear so he feels apart of being a true Hilltopper)

We are so grateful here at Chardon High for the teddy bears! Simple things like this show us that people care and are here for us in this difficult time. I know it made me feel so much better as well as many others. Everyone loves them. The simple words "thank you" cannot express our gratitude, but unfortunately, it is all I can say through this small entry. So, thank you! One Heartbeat <3

Thank you so much for giving our school teddy bears this week! It means a lot to my friends, (or better called) my hilltopper family. Your bears have given my classmates comfort and we are so thankful for all that you have done for us

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have done for the kids at Chardon High School. My daughter was in that room where the shooting happened and being handed that Teddy Bear this morning in that room put a much needed smile on her face. She has not let go of her Teddy Bear. Thank you so much for doing what you do. You make a huge difference in peoples lives.
