Bear for Bear: the most beautiful Christmas gift

I am always on the look out for ethical or socially kind gifts, gifts that are more than just what you wrap up, put a pretty bow on, to give away. Gifts that somehow serve a greater cause or purpose than simply celebrating another year in life or special occasion.  Earlier this year, I listed my ten favourite socially kind Mothers Day gifts to give, and last Christmas my favourite Children’s Christmas gift to give was The Indigenous Literacy Foundation’s children’s book The Naked Boy and the Crocodile.

This year, I have found the most beautiful Children’s Christmas gift to give; a Mummy’s Wish voice recordable Teddy Bear.  

For just $29.50 you get TWO bears; one talking Teddy Bear for the child in your life, and another bear for a child whose mum has cancer via charity Mummy’s Wish.  To borrow from one of my other favourite charities TOMS shoes and eyewear – two bears, one for one.

Talking bears are just one way that Mummy’s Wish provides comfort and support to young families while their mum is undergoing cancer treatment. The bears given to children by Mummy’s Wish allow mums to record a special message that eases the anxiety of being separated from her while she is in hospital.

“The bears give my children a small piece of me they can cuddle and be with while I’m away,” said Melissa, a young mum who has to travel 300km for her cancer treatment.

Every day around Australia, 13 families have their lives turned upside down when mum’s diagnosed with cancer. Mummy’s Wish helps families keep going day-to-day. They take care of life’s little details – such as parking, cleaning and grocery vouchers – so families can focus on what’s really important: being together and getting well.

So this Christmas, consider buying a Mummy’s Wish Christmas Teddy Bear as your perfect Children’s gift to give.  Be quick, orders close at 5pm on Saturday 8th December – so get your order in here.
