I am located in Paradise, California – which is about 1 1/2 hours North of Sacramento and about 15 miles up in the foothills from Chico. We have great need around here for a service like “hugs”. The bears will be wonderful to provide to our First Responders as well as to the localfoster care agency “Youth for Change” – as well as other local agencies for children. We are in a fire zone as well as a heavy snow zone (we can go for days with no power in the winter when the snows get really bad) – both of these situations cause children lots of stress and confusion – having a teddy bear to hug would make such an impact.
