Bid on a Browncoat Bear for Charity!

With the support of the Vancouver film industry, BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre in Canada is proud to bring you Bears that Care for BC Women's - the cutest fundraiser in town!

Famous personalities from film and television have thrown their support behind BC Women's by autographing these cuddly little bears. And they are just crying out for a new home - with you!

100% of the proceeds from the auctions of the Bears that Care for Women's will benefit the BC Women's Hospital and Health Centre. Charitable Registration No: 890267537RR0001

BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre is Canada's busiest maternity hospital. Your assistance helps us care for the pregnant women who come here from across the province when they're in danger, when something suddenly goes terribly wrong during their pregnancy. By helping us raise money in this project, you are also helping us provide the best possible care for more than 1,200 babies every year who fight for their lives in our Special Care Nursery. You are helping BC Women's, a recognized world leader in women's health, care for women at every stage in their lives.

Each week until the end of March, a new group of celebrity bears will be up for grabs.
