Charity Bears Help Bring Unity. . .

This is the place where you'll find adorable teddy bears that will help bring unity and love to your ward. Each Charity Bear comes with a little poem attached to its ear:

Hello My Friend!
I am here to bring you joy
Don't mistake me for a funny little toy,
I've been thinking of you
With a smile that rings true.
I love you with a beautiful love
That comes from the Lord up above.

Enjoy me, love me and hug me for a few days
Then let another sister feel my loving ways.
Pass me along to a friend in our ward
Someone who needs love from you and the Lord

Now, Picture this:
You have just received "joybear" on your doorstep. She is adorable and so soft. You don't know who brought her to you, but you are happy someone is thinking of you. How sweet! You enjoy the cuddly teddy bear for several days, then start to think about who else would benefit from having "joybear". It's so much fun to think about, you wish you had more than one teddy bear to give away. But in the end you decide (with inspiration, perhaps) on THE person who needs her most, then you go deliver Joybear and feel the smiles.
