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 valentines day this is what I found on my front porch...hand crochet blankets from a sweet lady in Oregon who made this just for our ministry of sending blankets and bears to orphanages. These will be sent to an orphanage in Sierre Leone or Liberia...we are currently completely out of stock of blankets and send.

Just mailed out 167 bears (this one included) to an orphanage in Liberia! You can check out the Sure and Firm orphanage at http://www.sureandfirmfoundation.com/orphanage.htm . We hope to have pictures of children receiving bears in the next months. Our goal is to supply all 167 children at this orphanage with a blanket but as of now we are on very short supply of blankets and need to furnish 82 blankets to an orphanage in Sierra Leone that has received blankets for part of the children at that orphanage. You can help by just looking in those hall closets for some extra blankets (twin size) and donating to our cause or sending any money donation to PO Box 1473, Panhandle, TX 79068. Just think something like a blanket you may hardly ever use could mean the world and maybe Christ to a child in Africa and you have the way to help them! Without YOU none of this would be possible.

Today we were able to ship 100 new twin size fleece blankets to an orphanage of over 182 kids in Sierra Leone. We were also able to help the orphanage with food this month by a small donation. Our mission is sending blankets and bears-the tangible love of Jesus for those orphans in third world countries but occassionally we have been able to donate small amounts to orphanages. Our goal is to provide the other 82 kids with a blanket this year-you can donate monetary funds or blankets to Blankets & Bears, PO Box 1473, Panhandle, TX 79068. We hope to have pictures of the children at The Needy Today receiving their blankets and bears up for you in the next months. You can go to the orphanages website to see the conditions these children are presently in and see how much your donation or blanket means to them at http://www.orphanage.org/africa/sierraleone/tnt/

We have just shipped over 180 bears to The Needy Today orphanage in Sierre Leone and have confirmation that they have been received! We are getting together a shipment of blankets for all 182 children and are in desperate need of blankets! We have found the fleece blankets are easiest to ship and warm. We accept all new and gently used blankets mostly twin size. This orphanage is also in desperate need of food. Our mission is to send blankets and bears as a tangible expression of Jesus Christ's love to orphans but at the same time we are hopefully raising awareness of orphanages around the world and their needs. We have links to orphanages we have shipped to in the right column. Please take the time to pray and see if there is any way you can send monetary support to any of these orphanages. The Needy Today is in desperate need of food right now. You can find out more about their cause and how to donate directly to them at http://www.orphanage.org/africa/sierraleone/tnt/faq.html . At this time we are collecting any donations to wire money to the orphange before friday if you can help in anyway please contact me by phone at 806-679-0380. Thanks and may you be the Jesus someone sees today.
I am not the only one who sends out surprise packages of blankets and bears....a sweet church in Lousiana Martin Baptist Church. For the last few years the church has been collecting bears and blankets during christmas season and sending to me to ship to others. If it wasn't for this church and people who donate Blankets & Bears mission to send tangible love to orphans would not be possible! Thanks for the sweet packages-sending them on to others!
