PROJECT BEAR HUGS™
Project Bear Hugs™ is an organization made up of cause-based staff and volunteers striving to provide much needed comfort and relief to victims of disaster. Founded in 2013, Project Bear Hugs™ aims to provide comfort to the world's victims of disaster. Over the last 5 years, we have successfully provided much needed comfort items and donations to thousands of disaster victims across the U.S.. We remain dedicated to providing support to all victims of disaster.
Because of our volunteers, donors and network of people across the United States, Project Bear Hugs™ has been able to provide relief supplies and comfort items to thousands of families impacted by over a dozen different disasters. We have been able to support those most at risk during times of disaster...children, elderly, pets and those with mental health needs.
HOW WE WORK
When a disaster hits there are a number of organizations that provide immediate shelter and care. While they are stepping in to provide immediate needs, we activate to get ready for rebuilding.
All Things Are Possible
Project Bear Hugs™ partners with nonprofit and community organizations across the United States to ensure donations are collected that will meet the current needs of the community.
100% of our effort focuses on disaster relief and recovery.
We are committed to collecting needed donations and distributing those items to people and families who have been affected by natural disasters to help them recover and rebuild.

Carr Fire Relief
The Carr Fire is the largest fire in California history, burning over 170,000 acres, destroying over 1,000 homes and killing 7 people. The devastation is widespread and hard to comprehend. The recovery and rebuilding efforts will last for months, if not years. And as previous fire victims have said, they need everything and nothing.
Fire victims have lost so much they don’t even know where to begin. By having cash donations we are able to find out exactly what they need, and provide that to them.
Remember, over 1,000 homes destroyed means much more than 1,000 people without homes. It could mean 1,000 men, 1,000 women, 2,000 children and thousands of pets without a place to call home. They need your help!
We couldn't do what we do without you! Here is what you, our volunteers and donors, have helped us accomplish:
