COMFORT BEARS IN A CATASTROPHE

Supporting Children Impacted By Disasters

ABOUT

What is Comfort Bears in a Catastrophe?

Disasters can be traumatizing for anyone, but for children, they can be especially overwhelming and frightening. Comfort Bears in a Catastrophe aims to provide hope and comfort to children impacted by disasters. 

We do this by giving each child a special Comfort Bear, along with a handwritten note of encouragement, to let them know that they are not alone. It may seem like a small gesture, but it can make a world of difference to a child who's feeling scared and alone.

Your donation can help us make sure that every child impacted by disasters receives a Comfort Bear and a message of hope. With your help, we can make sure that no child has to face the aftermath of a disaster without feeling safe and loved.

As a fiscally sponsored project of IFERS, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we're able to offer tax-deductible donations. This means your contribution not only makes a difference to the children we serve, but can also benefit you come tax season.

Please join us in our mission to bring comfort and hope to children in need. Your support can make all the difference in the world to a child who's struggling to find their way in the aftermath of a disaster.

IMPACT STORIES

Since our nonprofit was founded, we have had a number of success stories and have seen the impact our bears have had on people’s lives. We’re proud to be able to bring a little bit of comfort to those who need it most.

"It is these little moments of smiles I have seen that bring a glimmer of hope among tough times. We might not be able to fix everything over night, but we can infuse it with love one Comfort Bear at a time."

- Savannah Gankiewicz, Miss Hawaii USA

WHY DO YOU ONLY GIVE TO CHILDREN IMPACTED BY DISASTERS? HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF SICK CHILDREN OR CHILDREN IN FOSTER CARE?

Our organization is dedicated to serving a unique population of children: those impacted by disasters. While many organizations donate stuffed animals to children for various reasons, we noticed that children affected by disasters are often overlooked and left without the comfort they need during such difficult times.

Most children impacted by disasters lose their belongings and have limited social interaction, leading to feelings of loneliness and isolation. Our Comfort Bears provide a source of hope and comfort to these children during such challenging times. We believe that every child deserves to feel safe and loved, especially during times of crisis, and we are committed to ensuring that these children receive the support they need to overcome their challenges and feel a sense of normalcy once again.
