Helping provide Comfort at a Time of Loss
Coping with the loss of a family member or friend is a difficult and grievous process that varies from person to person. To honor your loved ones and provide comfort after loss, we have created the Kaleidoscope Memorial Bear Program. Families provide cherished garments — a favorite blouse, shirt or pajamas that belonged to a loved one — which is then sewn into a handmade teddy bear. These cuddly bears symbolize a special memory that you can hold close to your heart forever.
Although nothing can heal the pain of losing a family member or friend, memory bears provide a sense of comfort to the bereaved.
Become a memory bear volunteer sewer.
Our specially trained volunteers are at the heart of this mission — bringing comfort to families who have experienced great loss. We welcome volunteers with intermediate sewing skills and a few basic sewing supplies to join our memory bear workshop.
