Bear Hugs for U.S. Soldiers

Beginning this Memorial Day, 210,000 red, white and blue teddy bears inscribed with "We Support and Hug You" will be delivered to U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. An additional 90,000 teddy bears will be distributed to soldiers recuperating in VA hospitals across America.

Estero, FL, February 13, 2008 --( The effort, in large part, is due to the handiwork of retired businessman David Hamblett and his wife P.J. The couple have committed to the manufacture and delivery of the 300,000 plush, 5” teddy bears. The nonpartisan effort is aimed at recognizing our troops for their bravery and personal sacrifice.

The polyester bears come in navy blue with white stitched buttons and a bowtie. Stitched in red on each bear’s chest are the words, “We Support and Hug You”. Each bear will then be secured in a mesh bag with a red ribbon drawstring. In addition to the stuffed bears, each soldier will also receive a thank-you note and a Veteran’s Advantage membership card.

Through donations at their website, the Hambletts also expect to raise $1 million for Operation Gratitude ( and Operation: Care and Comfort (, both recognized 501(c)(3) charities.

This grass roots effort gives individuals the ability to sponsor a special “Bear Hug” gift pack for just $1. Additional giving levels are available.
