The mission of the United Adventure Bear program is to bring smiles to children in need across the globe. Proceeds from the program benefit organizations that help children through health struggles and economic hardship. The 2015 program benefits the March of Dimes Foundation®, the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health, which funds research and programs that help babies begin healthy lives. This year’s Ben Flyin Adventure Bear comes with a buddy, Elijah, in honor of Elijah Jackson, the 2015 March of Dimes National Ambassador. There are two ways to participate between now and July 31: Give a bear, get a bear. With each $40 “Give a bear, get a bear” donation, you will receive your own 2015 Ben Flyin Adventure Bear (along with his buddy Elijah), and you’ll also send a bear to a child in need. Give a bear. With a $20 donation, you can send a 2015 Ben Flyin Adventure Bear to a child in need.
