Years ago, long-time WFS Online member and chat leader, TeddyBearCuddle (TBC), started the Teddy Bear Challenge. She was unable to travel to Pennsylvania for the Annual Weekend Conference, so she donated the amount she would have spent on travel and registration – $1,000 – and challenged her WFS Online sisters to match her donation. $5, $10, $20 at a time, the donations added up and surpassed the goal. This tradition has continued with the Certified Chat Leaders taking over the matching $1,000 donation, and over the years, program participants have donated over $74,000 for Women for Sobriety through this event!
Teddy Bear Drawing
Last year, WFS adopted out 13 lovable teddy bears as a thank you to our generous Teddy Bear Challenge donors. It was such a success, we will be doing it again! Keep an eye on WFS Online for the bear stories to begin appearing in May. Each donor will receive 1 entry into a drawing to receive a bear. If you would prefer to not be entered into the drawing with your donation, simply indicate your preference on the donation form. No donation is necessary to win; if you wish to enter the drawing without making a donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Minimum 18 years of age.
