Adopt-a-bear is a grassroots non-profit campaign dedicated to fighting child abuse. Its daily mission is to help comfort abused, neglected and abandoned children – one teddy bear at a time!
At the core of the adoption effort is the experience of children helping children. The “adoption” of the teddy bear by one child for another who is less fortunate is a treasured gift for all. Of course, loving adults are encouraged to adopt as well.
The campaign was created by CBS-4 News Chief Investigative Reporter Michele Gillen in response to state budget cuts that endangered the gifting of bears by our Juvenile Court Judges. Thanks to you, the bears are being rescued – and so are the children. To make a donation to Adopt A Bear, click here.
