Do you want to give someone on your list a cute, cuddly gift that gives back? This year, the Hudson’s Bay Company’s foundation is introducing its annual limited-edition Charity Bear appropriately named Hudson.
According to HBC, the HBC charity bear is the 13th edition and retails for $21.99. One hundred per cent of net proceeds from the sale of each HBC Charity Bear will be in support of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and the Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada, through the HBC Foundation’s HEADFIRST Program.
In 2017, HBC Foundation launched the HEADFIRST Program, a $2 million commitment to supporting mental health initiatives across North America. Through combatting stigma, investing in research and improving mental health programs, HBC Foundation’s HEADFIRST Program is dedicated to positively impacting the mental health landscape across Canada.
Since its launch in 2005, the Charity Bear collection has raised more than $1.6 million to help improve the lives of Canadians.
We think this is a great gift idea for someone special on your list!
The HBC Charity Bear, Hudson, is available for purchase at Hudson’s Bay and at thebay.com.
