In 2011, a loved member and chat leader, TeddyBear started the Teddy Bear Challenge. In 2021, the Teddy Bear Challenge raised $77,274!
- 155 financial donations, including 9 of $1,000 or more
- $50,000 from our anonymous WFS angel
- The sale on eBay of 13 Statement bracelets were also contributed
The main purpose of the Teddy Bear Challenge is the fundraising. However, to make it even more fun and offer women an opportunity to put Statement #10 into action, “All love given returns” … teddy bears and bunnies are stuffed & accessorized and then offered as prizes in a drawing. It is our belief that the dolls will deliver hugs and love to whomever receives them. To date, 100 dolls have been given away in this effort, with love given to the doll and returned to all.
Financial donors are entered into this drawing, unless they opt out. eBay buyers can request to be entered by using the electronic form. However, a financial donation or purchase is not required to enter. See below for the rules the drawing.

Very worthy cause!
Hello! I have been trying to donate to the Teddy Bear Challenge but the screen freezes as soon as I press the button to pay. Could you let me know if it went through? The amount was about $140.00 or so. Thank you so much!
