A Special Little Boy Has a Roaring Good Time with His New Lion!
Posted Feb 22 2011 10:09am
As you probably know by now, I’m a huge fan of the Teddy Bear Wish Program founded by Teddy Bears Personalized . Through this program, they donate personalized teddy bears and other plush animals to children who could really use an extra pick-me-up.
Recently, Teddy Bears Personalized sent a very special personalized lion to a little boy named Gabriel. Here’s what his mom, Patti, told us: “Our youngest son pretends he is a lion and roars a lot to indicate how he’s feeling, which is especially meaningful to us as he is autistic and doesn’t speak.” Here’s a picture of Gabriel with his beautiful new lion
Patti, who writes about her family and her love of contests at The World of Contest Patti , sent this note with the photo: “Gabriel is practically living with his lion glued under his arm! It’s wonderful to see him so engaged.” I am so thrilled that little Gabriel was able to benefit from this wonderful program.
If you know a child who would be cheered by a personalized teddy bear or plush animal (perhaps a little one with a life-threatening illness or who is going through an especially difficult life event), please send an email with your candidate and a short message of why you would like to see him/her receive a free Personalized Teddy Bear to firstname.lastname@example.org . And please help Teddy Bears Personalized to be able to continue with this awesome program by ordering from them for your next gift-giving occasion!
