Help the Homeless Teddy Bear
Got any spare hugs?
Please give the little homeless bear a place to stay! Who could say no to his enduring smile?
10% of proceeds will go to PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) Organization
As longtime residents of both Oakland and Los Angeles, we realize that while homelessness is indeed a fact of life especially with so many people co-existing in a such a small space, we also know that the extent of the homelessness issue may not readily be apparent to those outside of urban areas.
Fear often prevails during interactions with the homeless, so the goal of the Hobo Bear is to bring awareness to the situation, remove the stigma and remind the more fortunate that everybody is human. Whether you have personally had a negative or positive experience, please remember that one occurrence or one person does not represent an entire demographic.
Please also consult PATH (People Assisting the Homeless) and see if you can spare some time to volunteer and learn about how you can help beyond donating. If you are unable to help financially or volunteer your time, please remember that it only takes a second to listen, smile, or say hello.
