"Our teddy bears are about love and smiles, and we hope they bring some joy to people in treatment, survivors, and to everyone who supports and loves them through the journey.
Anaheim, California (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Giant Teddy is donating 10% of all pink teddy bear sales in October to Susan G. Komen Orange County in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Located in Anaheim, California, Giant Teddy makes bears in sizes from 18in up to 6 feet and has a number of pink teddy bears in various styles, including several wearing “Pink Paws for the Cause” custom designed shirts.
Company CEO Ray Kohsravi said, “We like to give back where we can through our teddy bears. Supporting Susan G. Komen Orange County means our donation helps people in our own community and also helps fund research at the national level. Everyone is working for the same thing – a cure for this terrible disease, and helping those who have to fight it until we find that cure.”
A team from Giant Teddy participated in the local Susan G. Komen Orange County Race for the Cure on September 28th, headed by team captain pink teddy bear Lulu Shags. “She’s one of our TV stars, appearing on CBS’s ‘Mike & Molly’ last May and in the USA Network’s ‘Royal Pains’ in June,” said Kohsravi. “She’s a natural leader!”
“We decided to announce this today, October 8th, because it is also Take Your Teddy Bear To Work Day,” said Kohsravi. “Cancer isn’t fun. But that doesn’t mean people fighting cancer don’t need a little fun in their lives. Our teddy bears are about love and smiles, and we hope they bring some joy to people in treatment, survivors, and to everyone who supports and loves them through the journey.”
In addition to supporting Susan G. Komen Orange County, Giant Teddy also donates a number of pink Lady Cuddles teddy bears to a Texas-based organization, Breast Cancer Can Stick It, founded by triple negative breast cancer survivor and female rock drummer April Samuels.
