Bears Without Borders is a 501(c)3 US non-profit dedicated to the delivery of toys and other materials for the benefit of children world-wide. The organization was founded by two graduate students at Harvard University and MIT in honor of their wedding in order to share the joy they felt with others. Please have a look at what we've done and what we are doing. We'd love for you to get involved in some of our projects, or to help us think of new ones!
We use specially designated funds ONLY for the specially designated purpose. No one working with the organization receives any sort of salary - it's strictly volunteer for everyone involved. Miscellaneous expenses come only out of general funds - if you donate a teddy bear, all of your donation will go to purchase and send that teddy bear to a child, not for anything else. If there are monies left over, it all goes towards the next teddy bear. The same goes for all of our products.
to a technical problem, some donors may have received a delayed
shipping notice. We are working to fix this issue. Thanks
for your patience
