About the Program

Founded in 2002 the Big Hero, Little Hero® Program is one of our oldest and most loved Bears That Care. Every day we see first-hand the comfort and friendship our Bears provide which is why it means so much to us when we are able to send Bear hugs to children when they need them most. To date we have donated over 16,000 Bears to first responder units throughout the United States.

Sign up your first responder unit, senior living facility, or hospital here.

    "As an EMT in Brooklyn we just received some Hero Bears donated to us from the Vermont Teddy Bear company. Just two days after receiving these bears, I issued two bears to a son and daughter whose father was injured and they sat scared and crying while we attended to their Daddy. They instantly smiled and seemed comforted as they hugged there new Hero bears. Thank you VTB for the new bears to comfort the little ones in need." - Justin
