Welcome to BearHug, Inc.
BearHug is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps children whose parents are deployed in the military. Every month we send letters to military children so they know someone is thinking of them. Letters are from other children who want to thank them for their sacrifice for our country.
Why should you donate to BearHug?
Studies have shown that children who have parents in the military have a higher likelihood to have depression than children whose parents are not in the military*. Depression can be caused by loneliness *. At BearHug, we believe that we can help ease the loneliness some children experience. By reaching out to children whose parents are deployed let's them know other people are thinking of them and appreciate their sacrifice for our country.
