We are happy to keep bringing you Hugs Across America news, highlight activities of our volunteers and create a fun place for our visitors, supporters and friends of our mission.
We are so grateful to you and your organization for the great stuffed animals that you provide for the children during the Holidays.
They are a God sent for the kids here. They have helped foster a sense of love and safety for our children especially during the challenging holiday times (when some of the kids don’t have family come to visit them while they are in the hospital)
Kings County Hospital Child and Adolescent Psychiatry has used your gifts for patients who suffer from PTSD and depression due to trauma (sexual, physical abuse or neglect or domestic violence) They have been a GREAT source of self soothing and comfort for these patients who often times use self- mutilation or other forms of self-harm to express their pain and suffering. The stuffed animals help them relax and feel cared for and loved.
We do so appreciate your effort to bring these children some hope.

Brayden's BEARS was founded in 2013, by Christine, a stay at home Mom on a mission. Christine and her husband realized the joy, love, and smiles that a simple Teddy Bear brought to their son Brayden's face. They realized that every child needed to experience the same joy, love and smiles that their son experienced when cuddling with a Teddy Bear. Brayden's BEARS was born. Brayden's BEARS donates one Teddy BEAR to a child in need, for every Teddy BEAR sold.
