Aching Arms comfort bear for the Donate a Bear at Christmas 2023 fundraising campaign. holly hearts graphic


Many families find great comfort in donating Aching Arms bears, and for them it's a special way of remembering their baby at Christmas.

This Christmas we invite you to dedicate a bear in memory of a baby special to you.

Each soft and cuddly Aching Arms bear wears a personalised label that is lovingly handwritten with the name of the baby in whose memory the bear was dedicated. The label also connects families to sources of information, support and understanding. The bear you donate will be gifted to another bereaved family which extends the arm of friendship and helps other bereaved parents to know they are not alone.

When donating a bear this Christmas, our supporters have the option of their baby’s name being added to a heart on our beautiful ‘Holly Hearts’ graphic, which will be shared across our social media pages throughout November and December, culminating with a special holly hearts montage on Christmas Eve.

Important Information to note: This campaign started on 7th November at 12pm (noon). All donations to this campaign need to be made by 12pm (noon) on Monday 18th December 2023. After this time, no further 'Holly Hearts' images will be created, however you can still donate bears in memory of your baby.

We kindly ask that you carefuly read the information on our Donate a Bear for Christmas page here, where you can find out more and donate.
