Share a Bear 2011
This year, we took our 2nd Annual (hopefully!) Share-A-Bear event to the Martha Rivers Ingram Commons on reading day. It was a huge hit! While the event was only supposed to run from 2:00 to 4:00 we had a steady line of people from half an hour before we “started” until an hour after we “closed.” We made nearly 150 bears for kindergarteners, most of whom are severely underprivileged. The fun of the event itself was second only to the fun that came from seeing the kids’ faces light up.
As these photos clearly demonstrate, this event was nothing short of awesome. Here’s hoping we can make this happen every year!
