Through the years, Bev has created many special bears for a variety of charitable organizations and individuals.  Some have been extensive editions and some are one-of-a-kind creations. Some have been obscure and some were advertised, but all are profoundly important. Here are but a few that you may recognize.


This Is Mitchell Bear.....

          and His Twin Brother Matthew


The original 30" Chance was created to benefit Mitchell (sleeping child) in his battle against Histiocytosis.  His vest was autographed by Joe Torre, famous coach of the Yankees and a cancer survivor himself.  After a year of travel around the world with Bev, he was auctioned at the QVC National Show, November 2000 for $20,500.00, with the proceeds going to the organization for research.  Now a robust boy, Mitchell is thankfully in "permanent remission" today.
