Support for Love & Hugs
The Love & Hugs Adopt-A-Den Program
is an easy and flexible way to participate as an individual, family, organization or business. Host an event, organize a collection or sponsor a full or partial "den" by raising and donating some or all of the cost of the 40 to 50 bears needed each month ($1000 to $1250). Click here
for more details and how to get started.
The Adopt-A-Den Program launched in early 2015. Participants, so far, include:

PJ Library Columbus
The Anderson, Powers & Walker Families
The Fireman Families / ECDI
Temple Israel Religious School 8th Grade

Others like to incorporate this activity into their celebrations of special birthdays, holidays and anniversaries.
