The simple objective is for Freemasons to provide teddy bears and soft toys to Accident and Emergency units, for the medical staff, to give, at their discretion, to children admitted who are in severe distress and where the staff feel that a teddy or soft toy to cuddle will help alleviate the stress and assist them in their work.
Is this a Public appeal?
As a charity, we do not turn down donations from others who see the benefits of the idea, but over 99% of the money needed is being donated by Freemasons.
Do the children keep the teddy?
Yes, they take the teddy home.
How much of the appeal money goes on administration?
Absolutely nothing, time and facilities are donated. We do spend less than 1% on fund-raising and PR, but every penny of the remainder is used to purchase the teddies or urgently needed paediatric equipment for A&E units.
How many teddies are involved?
Since the Appeal was founded more than ONE MILLION teddies have been distributed.
What if I have some other questions? Or would like to donate?
