Show us your bear
Do you still have your Wish Bear?
Whether you've had it for just a few weeks or months, five years, 10 years or more, #ShowUsYourBear and help us celebrate 35 years of granting wishes.

In celebration of our 35th Anniversary, the #ShowUsYourBear campaign will feature the long-lasting, life-changing impact of a wish-come-true. A wish experience goes far beyond a day or week—it's a journey, and your Wish Bear is a part of it.

Help us celebrate throughout the month of May by posting a photo of you and your Wish Bear with the hashtag "#ShowUsYourBear" to your social media accounts. Make sure your post is "public" and please tag us via Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter (our handles are listed below). You can also send us a current photo of you and your bear at

If your wish was granted five or more years ago, please also post and/or send us a photo of when you first received your Wish Bear, along with a current photo of you and your bear.

Be on the lookout for posts on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages to see how you can join in on the fun.

In the end, a wish bear is more than just a stuffed animal. Not only is it a symbol of comfort and hope in hard times, but it's also a symbol of transformation and beating the odds. Make a difference in the life of a child with a critical illness and donate, refer a child or become a volunteer today.
