Hello all! Are you looking for a way to make a global and local impact with your family? On the hunt for a new activity to do with your kids? How about a build-a-bear kit that can be delivered to your doorstep?
Oso is a nonprofit program that employs mothers in Guatemala City to hand make stuffed teddy bears. These teddy bears empower the women to make double their community’s average income. With the current crisis, these teddy bears now help provide staple foods to them and their families. The kits come with everything you need to stuff and complete a handmade, one of a kind teddy bear. Thread, needle, poly fil and How To instructions on paper and in video format. The video also tells the story behind the bear and is an opportunity to teach your family about a different part of the world. Buy your kit today at this website here
Your teddy bear can either stay at home with you or we are encouraging you to donate them to local heroes in Glover Park or unvisited and missed loved ones. See our team of women and the kit in these photos!
