As recipients of our Newsletter will know, we made a Teddy Bear called Sunflower to raise money for the appeal set up by the organisers of Hugglets and other Teddy and Doll fairs around the World. The appeal can be found at and every penny of the money raised will go directly to help Ukrainian doll and bear makers with food, clothes, accomodation or travel expenses. Many of these people are known personally by them because of their contact at the fairs previously held in the Ukraine and they are in dire need of our help. The appeal aims to raise 20,000 euro's and at the time of writing this, they have raised 14,116.70 euro's part of which is the £55 we raised with Sunflower. Please visit the donorbox page to read all about the appeal and we will keep you updated with the amount raised.

It may only have been £55 but every penny we can send helps someone desperately in need, Teddy Bear people trying to help other Teddy Bear people when they need it the most. If we make another bear for the appeal we will let you know.
