Bears Without Borders

Bears Without Borders is a 501(c)3 US non-profit dedicated to the delivery of toys and childhood necessities to children world-wide. The organization was founded by two graduate students at Harvard University and MIT in honor of their wedding in order to share the joy they felt with others.

They use specially designated funds ONLY for the specially designated purpose. If you donate a teddy bear, all of your donation will go to purchase and send that teddy bear to a child, not for anything else. If there are monies left over, it all goes towards the next teddy bear. The same goes for all of their products.

No one working with the organization receives any sort of salary - Bears Without Borders is run entirely by volunteers.
