Catherine Cares Heart Beat Bears

Today was a very special day for us as we helped our friends over at Catherine Cares deliver their first batch of special teddy bears made by Build-A-Bear Workshop.

These amazing bears come equipped with a device that plays the recorded ultrasound of an unborn childs heart beat. This bear helps comfort grieving parents who are coping with the loss of their unborn infant. By allowing parents to have the heartbeat of their baby to listen to on command, this bear becomes the last remaining physical connection to their child hearing the only sound that their child ever made before passing on.

This amazing idea was made possible by the fundraising efforts of some very awesome young students from Missouri and Illinois. We’re proud to be a supporter of this fantastic charity and look forward to combining our efforts again in the future with Catherine Cares.
