Blankets & Bears
Check out our interview from this morning on KAMR about donation drive at Highland Park ISD and dont forget about our 5K Funraising race and walk in August at Medi Park!
Our mission is to send the "tangible" love of Jesus Christ to his orphaned children throughout the world in the form of a blanket or bear.
Our vision is to send that warm and cuddly feeling of love through blankets and bears to orphanages in Africa, then Asia and eventually to all third world countries.

This is a christmas tree donation drive that a church in Lousiana. Just this week we received two large boxes from their drive. Love the idea and the love from this church! We met up with the church on a multiple church mission trip to Laredo with Brother Price Harris earlier this year. Thanks Brother Richard Kaufman and members of the Martin Baptist Church!
Highland Park ISD is currently sponsoring a blankets and bears donation drive until February 18th.

At the end of November we sent over 70 bears and blankets to Good Shephered Orphanage in Zimbabwe, Africa. We are hopping and praying that they receive the shipment safely, smoothly through customs and in time before the winter season in Africa.
