Hi Neighbor distributes 500 Teddy bears

"THE BIG BEAR HUGGED ME. YEAH!" "Heartbeat Bears", the philanthropic arm of "Hi Neighbor Club-Kingwood", recently distributed 500 Teddy bears to the children at Texas Children's Hospital. The group worked diligently for a year to purchase the treasures, which were used for minimizing the stress, trauma, or depression of seriously ill children. Members personally surprised and delivered the soft, brown Teddy bears to the children, and delighted the little ones with a larger-than-life bear, who performed various happy movements for their enjoyment. In the hospital's lobby, the big bear shared hugs with visiting children, who were mesmorized by his presence. The little boy pictured is enjoying the attention of the lovable creature, and he announced: "The big bear hugged me!!! Yeah!!!"
