The Bear Hug Project:
The mission of The Bear Hug Project 501(c)(3) is to bring smiles to the faces of children who are unfortunately sick and hospitalized in Southeastern Wisconsin during the holiday season. Our goal is to provide an anonymous gift of a stuffed animal to every child in need during the holidays. This may be a lofty goal but we Know we can achieve it through the help of our team of dedicated
volunteers, charitable donations and generous corporate donor partnerships.
The Bear Hug Project 501(c)(3) was started by Noel Schoessow based on his own experience as a child. This is his story: "When I was a child I suffered a significant eye injury that left me hospitalized for nearly one year. This was an incredibly lonely and frightening time for me. During my stay in the hospital, my family gave me a puppet whose name was Fido as a gift and Fido became my best friend. Fido went
everywhere with me in the hospital and was predominant source of comfort while I was there.
I made a promise to myself that when I grew up I would find a way to bring that same comfort which I felt from Fido to other sick children who were stuck in the hospital during the holidays. All donations are anonymous, and every penny raised goes towards providing "Bear Hugs" to children in Southeastern Wisconsin."
