Teddy bears provide comfort and improve self-esteem in children especially those with special needs and as Eid is the festival of happiness and celebration, we want to make it special for all kids by - with your help - gifting teddy bears, one per orphan. To hug. To cuddle with. To love. Each orphan will also get a full Eid lunchbox with chicken sandwich, fruit, chocolate bar and drink.

Orphans are always isolated in Pakistan, but always prioritize celebrating the important and much looked forward to holiday of Eid. The city of Karachi becomes a festival with Eid treats and even Eidi (money for small childen to spend). However, orphans crave love most this time of year and we want to ensure to include them in the celebrations.


This Eid, we will distribute 100 Teddy Bears to orphans because they are providing something to cuddle with for children who do not have access to such toys nor often anything or anyone to love. Each orphan will also get a full meal.

Long-Term Impact

We have selected a teddy bear because it is a soft, cuddly toy that can last decades as a reminder of the community being fostered. It is packed to prevent spread of germs and to ensure each bear is factory new. We've chosen extra soft cushioning and premium design so the bear will stay in top condition longer as orphans don't often get such precious gifts. Studies have found that hugging and cuddling release oxytoxin which is a chemical that provides happiness and a sense of security.
