 Who would have thought that in just 19 years Project Ed Bear would have given over a half a million dollars to provide comforts and needs to pediatric oncology patients in Ohio? Most of our work is done for and through Akron Children’s Hospital with our actual mission being to provide comforts and needs for pediatric oncology patients throughout Ohio. We often send bears and other items to children suffering from cancer all over Ohio. All of this was made possible because of you. Your support to Project Ed Bear has enabled us to help children suffering from cancer by providing comforts and needs not limited to but including • The Signature “Ed Bear” Teddy Bear that started it all. This is given to every child upon being diagnosed. • Play Stations and games for each room on the oncology unit and for every bed in the clinic • The annual Camp Ed Bear (camp for hematology/oncology patients of Akron Children’s Hospital) • LIV Thru Art (art lessons provided by local artist in memory of Olivia Ward) • An Art Gallery opening and showing for our LIV Thru Art participants • Several events throughout September (Childhood Cancer Awareness Month) in collaboration with Camp Quality. • Mad Hatters Tea every other year. Out next one is in 2014. Make sure you get your tickets early. • A fund at Akron Children’s Hospital that they can pull from for items and needs for the children. • Computers and supplies for the oncology ward teacher • Treasure chest gifts (for the children to pick from after their procedures and chemo) • Birthday parties • End of treatment parties • Teen room Pool table • All teen activities including an annual trip to Cedar Point • The annual Christmas parties for Akron Children’s Hospital and Akron Children’s Hospital of Mahoning Valley for the children and their families • Cakes and cupcakes from West Side Bakery • Computer, Wii and PS3 Games • DVD’s for the children and their parents to choose from • Beautiful Age and Gender appropriate Filled Stockings for Christmas • Hearts of Chocolate for Valentine’s Day • Easter Gifts • Photo, Scrapbook and Art materials for the ward • A beautiful new clinic waiting area that includes an Ed Bear Cave for the children filled with toys • Laptop Computers • Flat screen televisions for the ward • College Scholarships This list is an example of some of the things that Project Ed provides with your help. Project Ed Bear is a 501c3 not for profit and our mission statement is clear. We are an ALL VOLUNTEER (no one ever is paid) organization that provides comforts and needs to pediatric oncology patients throughout Ohio. 100% of the money raised for Project Ed Bear goes directly to this mission. 501c3 organization # 341814871 th
