Memory Bears

Memory Bears are special teddy bears created from a deceased loved one’s articles of clothing such as shirts, dresses, blankets, uniforms, and sweatshirts. All are suitable for creating a Memory Bear.

They make a wonderful and thoughtful bereavement gift for family and friends. These soft friends are designed to be admired, hugged and displayed to keep your loved one close to your heart.

They are made with safety eyes and noses and are suitable for older children but are NOT intended to be toys. Each bear comes embroidered with your loved one’s initials or name. I intentionally make Memory Bears in a simple manner, without movable arms and legs so as to provide a quality heirloom keepsake at an affordable price. It is important to me that the they be made well, honoring your loved one. Each memory Bear is personalized and reflects the personality of those who are no longer with us when at all possible. I can incorporate personal items that you send me or I can accessorize the bear based on your suggestions.

The Bears are 20″ in height. For a minimum donation of $50.00 your bear will be created and returned to you within 2 weeks. Please mail the article of clothing to Build the Banner of Love, Inc. PO BOX 8243, Cranston, Rhode Island 02920. Once the donation is received, your bear will be constructed with great love.

You may send us detailed instructions under the form below. Please include what you would like embroidered on the bear’s foot. Proceeds received will be used for our parent and sibling support group meetings.  Any questions you may have, please ask and we will return your email within 24 hours.
