Bears and Bunnies for Kids , is an initiative started by John Stix, President of Fibernetics Corporation. Three times a year John goes out and purchases stuffed animals and distributes them to the kids wards at local hospitals. News got out to the rest of the staff and now John has a number of additional volunteers helping out with this act of kindness.
This past Halloween John surprised the kids at Grand River Hospital with a visit from Batman.
Due to it’s huge success, Fibernetics’ now supports this initiative and has expanded the program to additional hospitals. Mike Brown, Fibernetics Happiness Officer wanted to get involved as well. Mike contacted a manufacturer and had 1,000 bears specially made with t-shirts bearing the Bears and Bunnies for Kids logo.
We would love to hear your story on how one of our stuffies made a difference to a child’s hospital stay.
