Our Teddy Bear Touchdowns are holiday events for children with HIV/AIDS and cancer in many cities throughout the United States and twenty two foreign countries. We do these events for the children in memory of my god-daughter, Candace, who lost her battle with AIDS and cancer at age 4 in 1989.

The holiday season is a special time for all children. But our wonderful kids come from financially challenged families dealing with the additional financial strains of high medical costs. Without your help many of these children would not have a gift this holiday season

We are looking for businesses, organizations, churches, groups and our fellow Americans to donate new teddy bears and other gifts to be given during the upcoming holiday season to children affected and effected with HIV and AIDS.

YOU can help make a difference in the lives of these great children this coming holiday season. With your generous donation, each of our special children will receive at least two gifts for the holidays. The day of the event each child receives a teddy bear and they are also given a second wrapped gift to take home and open on the holiday they observe during December.

No matter which holiday you and your family celebrate, I think we can all agree that children should have hope and joy to brighten their lives during the holiday season. The smiles and laughter of the kids opening their gifts is a sight for the heart and soul.

You can help our children by donating a new teddy bear or other gifts for these very special children and help us add hope, joy and happiness to their lives this holiday season.

Your tax deductible donation can erase the pain and hurt of a child dealing with a chronic illness for one day and fill their hearts with hope.

Other great donation ideas for the children: winter coats, sweaters, toys and gift cards (WalMart, Target, KMart, ToysRUs, Winn Dixie and Publix), school supplies and/or backpacks and games (board, card etc).
