Give a bear to a child in need today!

The mission of the United Adventure Bear program is to bring smiles to children in need across the globe. Proceeds from the program benefit organizations that help children through health struggles and economic hardship. This year’s program benefits the March of Dimes® Foundation, which funds research and programs that help babies begin healthy lives. This year, our Ben Flyin Adventure Bear comes with his buddy Elijah, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Elijah Jackson, the 2015 March of Dimes National Ambassador!

There are two ways to participate between now and July 31:

  1. Give a bear, get a bear.
    With each $40 “Give a bear, get a bear” donation you will receive your own 2015 Ben Flyin & his buddy Elijah Adventure Bear and send a bear to a child in need.
  2. Give a bear.
    With a $20 donation, you can send an Adventure Bear to a child in need.

About the program:
The United Adventure Bear program was created to increase United's impact in the communities we serve and extend customer and co-worker engagement opportunities. United collaborated with GUND® to create the limited-edition Ben Flyin & Elijah teddy bears to serve as this year’s program ambassador.
Fundraising: The fundraising period takes place in June and July. Proceeds benefit organizations that help children and their families during health struggles or economic hardship. The 2015 beneficiary partner is the March of Dimes Foundation. 

Bear deliveries: In September and October, program partners and United co-workers will deliver bears to children around the globe who are experiencing health struggles or economic hardship. Adventure Bears have traveled within the U.S. as well as to twenty-one other countries, like Columbia, Israel, Italy, China, Japan, Peru and the United Arab Emirates.
