Teddy Bears/Beanie Babies
Over the last 8 years, Katie Cares has had the immense pleasure of giving children in Southern Health region Katie Cares Bags or Beanie Babies. Kaitlyn started this program herself while she was in hospital. She wanted to provide comfort to children. She herself knew the impact a teddy bear or beanie baby had for herself. In Kaitlyn’s own words, “I wanted to do all I could to make it better for other children”. We have heard so many stories of how receiving a bag or a Beanie Baby has wiped away tears and brought smiles to children’s faces.
Today we must announce, at the recommendation of Southern Health Sante Sud, that this program has been suspended indefinitely. Due to Covid 19, we will no longer be able to deliver this service. The reason that this has been suspended is the stuffies can not be wiped. So, to ensure everyone’s safety the program will not continue until further notice. As always, we want to assure parents that the Teddy Bears and Beanie Babies were new, never played with, we took the utmost of care while packing the stuffies.
If you have any questions or concerns. Please feel free to contact Ruth at or call to speak to Ruth in person at 204-312-8445.
We would like to thank everyone for your supporting Kaitlyn’s vision and dream.
See it…Believe it…Achieve it…
