I’d like to share a story and invite you to consider bringing a fun and a connecting experience to your work, to young people, or even to your own personal calling…
It was towards the end of 2017 that I went looking for one thing and discovered something that knocked my socks off. Literally, I saw it, tried it for myself, modified it and gave it a purpose. The birth of the Rescue Bear®️.
Rescue Bears are made from the lone mismatched sock, useless, and tossed aside. We make Rescue Bears to give these lonesome socks an entirely new purpose and meaning. Rescue Bears are individually crafted and designed for the sole purpose of bringing comfort and joy, especially for youths and teens who may be lonely or going through a difficult time. And just like people, no two Rescue Bears are alike!
It has been described as “therapeutic” and always surprisingly “fun” and bonding. “You really get to connect with people in a very natural way and discover their creative side”. It’s very revealing of the beauty within.
No two bears are ever alike and there’s no wrong way to make a Bear.
