Announcement I make teddy bears to help provide a little something special to children that are sick. For each bear that I sell, I make and donate a "Share-A-Bear" to an organization that works with kids. We donate to our local hospital's pediatric unit, Toys for Tots, Shriner's Hospital for Children, Children's Healthcare of Georgia and many more. Shop with a purpose and help make a difference

The Coca Cola bear was even better than I expected!! I didn’t realize it was going to be so big. Definitely a pleasant surprise! Beautiful bear and there’s a great cause attached to each purchase. Just remarkable. Thanks!

Nina was so helpful as the fabric I selected was no longer available but offered to show me the finished product with the new fabric prior to shipping to make sure we loved it- the best is adorable and large! Great value and pleasure to work with

I Purchased The "House Divided" Share-A-Bear By Nina With Fabric Of The Chicago Bears & Green Bay Packers ... Teddy Bear Arrived Safely Packaged And It's Beautifully Hand Made And A Great Addition To My Collection Of Teddy Bears ... I'm In Love! :) Also, It's A Wonderful Feeling To Participate In The Sharing; As Nina "Shares" A Teddy Bear With Someone Who Really Needs A Teddy Bear To Offer Comfort While They Mend ... That's AWESOME!! :)

Much bigger than I expected (I am very bad at reading all the details when I buy items haha), but I think it is just perfect! My name is Emily, and all my little ones in my life call me "Auntie Em". So for this little ones first birthday, I got him this bear and a vintage edition of the book! I cant wait to give it to him!

I started my first fundraising project in September, 2011. My mom was telling me about a co-worker's mom who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and was not covered by private insurance or Medicare. She needed money to pay for radiation treatments and surgery. This is Ms Jeri's story:
Ms. Jeri Williams was a 63 year old widow living on Social Security. Ms. Williams had no health insurance and was not eligible for Medicare\Medicaid. She was diagnosed with Cancer in September and underwent radiation treatments in the hopes that the tumor would shrink enough to undergo surgery. Her required medications were several hundred dollars a month. Ms. Jeri did not win her battle against cancer, but she did win the hearts of everyone she came into contact with.
My brother Alan, is my other inspiration. He is a very caring and compassionate person., He is currently a resident in a children's hospital in Florida. He has completed three medical mission trips where he has been able to provide care for children in places like Ethiopia and Bangladesh. I took great pride in being able to raise money for his trip to Bangladesh.
Nina's Share-A-Bear started as an idea to raise money to purchase stuffed bears to share with sick kids so they would have something to hug while going through their illness. This evolved into making homemade bears. With the support and help of my parents and other family friends (Cindy, Alice, Mary, Dawn and many more) I started "Nina's Share-A-Bear".
For every bear that I make and sell, I will make and donate a second bear to a children's hospital. This allows me to continue my fundraising projects from the proceeds of the bears that I sell and it also brings comfort and a smile to a hospitalized child.
I started donating bears 2013 and have donated over 2,050 bears. I am very passionate about being able to bring happiness and comfort to others. I am taking my passion for kids one step further and pursuing a Bachelor of Psychology degree.
