Mark your calendars for a heartwarming occasion this September 9th, 2023 – National Teddy Bear Day. It's a day that reminds us of the precious comfort and companionship our teddy bears provide. But this year, we're adding an extra layer of warmth and compassion to this special day.

As part of our heartfelt  'Donate a Bear for BLAW' campaign, we invite you to join us in spreading love and comfort. On Saturday, September 9th, 2023, between 12:01 AM and 11:59 PM, for every bear you donate, we'll match it.

These bear donations aren't just about this day; they're a part of something bigger – our 10th-anniversary campaign. For an entire decade, Aching Arms has been a registered charity, offering support and solace to those who have sadly gone through baby loss. Your contribution on National Teddy Bear Day will also contribute to this significant milestone, making it even more special.

Every bear you donate on this day becomes a symbol of remembrance and love. These bears will find their way to bereaved families and each bear will provide comfort and the message that they are not alone in their grief, whilst our precious babies will be honoured and remembered. 

All babies being remembered with a bear donation on this day will still be included in our special Say Their Name remembrance event. This will take place on our social media pages and website throughout Baby Loss Awareness Week (BLAW) 2023. 

Join us by simply donating a bear during the specified hours on September 9th, 2023, and watch your act of kindness multiply. It's a small gesture that can make a big difference. 

*Donate a Bear for BLAW 2023 is now closed.
