A Special Little Boy Has a Roaring Good Time with His New Lion!

As you probably know by now, I’m a huge fan of the Teddy Bear Wish Program founded by Teddy Bears Personalized. Through this program, they donate personalized teddy bears and other plush animals to children who could really use an extra pick-me-up.

Recently, Teddy Bears Personalized sent a very special personalized lion to a little boy named Gabriel. Here’s what his mom, Patti, told us: “Our youngest son pretends he is a lion and roars a lot to indicate how he’s feeling, which is especially meaningful to us as he is autistic and doesn’t speak.” Here’s a picture of Gabriel with his beautiful new lion:

Patti, who writes about her family and her love of contests at The World of Contest Patti, sent this note with the photo: “Gabriel is practically living with his lion glued under his arm! It’s wonderful to see him so engaged.” I am so thrilled that little Gabriel was able to benefit from this wonderful program.

If you know a child who would be cheered by a personalized teddy bear or plush animal (perhaps a little one with a life-threatening illness or who is going through an especially difficult life event), please send an email with your candidate and a short message of why you would like to see him/her receive a free Personalized Teddy Bear to giveaways@personalizedteddy.com. And please help Teddy Bears Personalized to be able to continue with this awesome program by ordering from them for your next gift-giving occasion!
