"Hello :)  I'm gonna be a bit selfish here and submit myself. I'm 41, divorced, 3 kids.
 I worked full time at I job I loved. In June '12, I started having severe neck/shoulder/arm pain, and my right arm and hand went numb.
 For some reason I had 2 discs in my neck herniate and bulge out cutting off my nerve endings.
 A year and a half later, 3 surgeries, here I sit, still numb, in pain, can't drive, lost my job (they're ready to take me back once I heal) and I feel like there's no end in sight.

 I lay at home day after day, no quality of life. I believe stuffed animals are wonderful creatures to hold that allows us to nurture our inner most selves and help connect us to that lost lonely and sad piece of our spirit we are afraid to show. Thank you for reading. " 

We wish you a Merry Christmas Jen! Teddy Bear and chocolate is on it's way :)

We will be back in January with a new contest, but now it time to relax a little bit!
We will still send Teddy Bears of course ;)

You will find this Christmas Witherspoon Teddy Bear here.

We are happy and honored to share these winning stories with you.

Kristin - You Rock!

This months Send A Teddy- winner is Deidre Huff

 from Waxahachie, Texas.

"I want to nominate my sister Kristin Bittick for the bear this month. She is so talented, sings in the Dallas Opera for instance, yet she teaches children music in Waxahachie, Tx, is mom to my nephew David who has Downs Syndrome, and works tirelessly to provide all she can to help improve his quality of life and is always helping out another family with special needs children. 

Last year a family that she knew had their baby boy in the hospital for months. He had Downs, and was only a few months old, but had had to have heart surgery. Due to complications, he almost died over and over. This was all over the Christmas holidays. 
Mom and Dad were poor and the bills were killing them. She was able to raise money enough to keep a roof over their heads, as well as arrange for "Santa"to come by the hospital with diapers, blankets, food etc. 

She gives tirelessly though she has a crazy busy schedule. I believe she definitely deserves this bear! "

Thank you Deidre for sharing this with us, Tatty Teddy is on his way to your sister!

Be sure to enter the Christmas contest. It will end December 20th.

Our great Brand Ambassador!

I had the privilage to meet Christine DeGraff on G+ and then later have her as the Send A Teddy brand ambassador for G+ and Twitter. It was a great experience and I can highly recommend her for anyone who want some professional G+ marketing. 

I started Send A Teddy a year ago and haven't really thought about paying someone to do our online marketing. I thought that is something I have to deal with and learn on the way. Then I met Christine on G+, a lovely and inspiring woman with a big heart and tons of knowledge about G+.

 I saw how she engaged with people in a great way. She was sharing her knowledge and helping others by giving them ( us newbies) a little extra push sharing our contents on her own page and saying nice things about our products. Friendly and helpful goes a long way!

I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did!

After a month of promoting Send A Teddy this is what she accomplished.

We all want to show our compassion to people that are struggling with their health. 
If you are close by you will probably go and visit them and help them the best way you can. If you are far away a Teddy Bear and some chocolate can be a sweet gift.

Our two newest Get Well bears are amazingly cute with lots of details.

We just love the cute slippers, the housecoat and the little Teddy under their arm.

Free Cards with Carlsson!

Model for a day!

Someone asked me the other day about the Teddy Bear on our free cards. The story is that my friend and artist Karen Maw painted my puppy "Carlsson" as a Teddy Bear. 

We thought it was so cute so we decided that he will be the motive on the free cards.

There are many cards to choose from in the store
but if you want a free one you can use
 our "Carlsson-cards"!

Carlsson live....and as a Teddy Bear :)

Excellent Feel Good Product!

One very special and new guy in our store is the Canadian Warm Buddy.

Originally, Warm Buddy products were aimed at the medical market and were widely used by medical practitioners in their treatments with infants and premature babies. 

Those warm-up plush animals are held to the highest standards of quality and safety in the World. Every Warm Buddy is designed to provide sleep therapy and natural relief from aches, pain and stress. 

Large Warm-Buddy

The removable inner heat pack (made of 100% pure white rice) can be warmed in the microwave or cooled in the freezer. 
Another popular Warm Buddy is the Puppy.  Both the Bear and the Puppy comes in two sizes.

They are super soft, fluffy and really cute!
Order in good time before Christmas to be sure to get one! 
Find them here at Send A Teddy!

Win a Bukowski Teddy Bear

It has been an interesting year since my first little text on this "Sendateddy-blog" almost a year ago.
We have had so much fun doing this and we are humble to be a part of sharing the love message between people!

I guess blogging once a year isn't what they recommend so I will try to post more often :)
 Please forgive my Swenglish, it will probably shine through now and then that I am a Swede living in Canada.

Something happened the other day that never happened before at Send A Teddy. It was sad and most humbling. I will tell you about that another day soon...when we are ready. (See the first post 2014).

Today I want to let you know that last month we started a contest on SendAteddy.
Every month you can win a cute Teddy Bear that we ship to a friend of yours with the "winning reason" to why you want this person to have it!

This month it is a Swedish designed Bukowski bear named Caroline that will be sent!
Do you have someone in Canada or US to send your love to, this is a sweet way of doing it :)
