Teddy Bear Cares for Children with Special Needs

They say people learn how to be the most selfless version of themselves once they become a parent (we agree)! And we believe it’s never too early to teach your children the value of giving a gift to someone in need. Art for All and DUCTAC are offering a fun and interactive way to give gifts AND give back to the community through their Teddy Bear Care initiative. Santa will be personally visiting and delivering teddy bears to children with disabilities and learning difficulties, making sure that every child is wearing a smile this Christmas! To make this special afternoon a success, all community members are welcome (and encouraged!) to donate a new teddy bear, in this festive spirit! Just pop into DUCTAC anytime before December 12th to donate a new teddy bear and fill up Santa’s sleigh for this wonderfully worthy cause!

When: Tuesday, 8 December, noon – 11pm
Garden on 8, Media One Hotel
How much
This costs you nothing but your time and a teddy (two things worth giving)!
