Welcome to the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser. This is our 11th year of helping create a magical holiday tradition, where family memories are made, and the money raised goes to help the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club.

The Teddy Bear Suite Team

Our annual holiday fundraiser has both a magical, real-world, home in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard, as well as its virtual, online presence here on the website and social media.

The magic of the MVTBS

This year, we are sponsoring Teddies Around Town again. We introduced this version of the MVTBS last year. It proved to be a safe, fun way to enjoy the bears and all that Edgartown hast to offer. We hope the magical suite itself will be back next year, but until then, the Bears are back. Join us as we partner with the Edgartown Board of Trade for Teddies Around Town.

Teddies Around Town

Once again this year the bears will be hiding in storefront windows for all to find. The event starts at Point B, where you get your sheet with clues and a holiday stamp. Once you find all or some of the bears, you come pack to Point B and you get a prize! We’ll give you a hint – it’s fuzzy and about seven inches tall.

The Magical Teddy Bear Suite Home In More Normal Times

The MVTBS 2019

Since 2018, the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite has been hosted in downtown Edgartown at 29 Winter Street. We’re hoping by next year, 2022, you will again find us at our Nevin Square home, which happens to be the festively decorated and magically transformed Point B Vacation Rentals + Experience Store. While we will not have the doors open for visitors this year, we will have an epic bear-themed window that you have to see!

Every dollar raised goes to the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club’s Healthy Happy Kids

$265,850 Raised In The First 10 Years

In our first 10 years, the annual holiday event has raised $265,850+ for the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club and its vital After School program that serves hundreds of elementary school-aged children and their families. In 2020 alone, the MV Teddy Bear Suite raised $49,852 which was enough to fund the vital food program — Healthy Happy Kids — that is addressing childhood hunger and food insecurity on the Vineyard. Sadly a very real, and large issue.

2020 was our most successful MVTBS year to date

H2K, as it’s known, has been a tremendous success. The program provides free food and dinners to go to its members. If a child is at the Club, he or she is able to have a full belly and have the freedom to enjoy being a child.

Celebrating the holidays at the Club

2020 was our biggest and best fundraising year ever. The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite raised over $49,000, and it was so wonderful to have so much support from the community and donors.

Teddies Around Town is fun for all ages

Teddy Bear Trot

In addition to donations at Teddies Around Town and donations online, the Teddy Bear Trot 5K Run & Walk is back. This year, it is in person and virtual. You can sport your most festive apparel and run the Teddy Bear Trot in Edgartown during Christmas in Edgartown or from anywhere in the world. Save the date – Sunday, December 12th. more details to follow.

#MVTEDDYBEARSUITE Social Media Hashtag

Our popular social media feed spotlight is back again as well. Our Social Media Photo Feed automatically pulls all photos from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts and feeds, that use our #mvteddybearsuite hashtag. This figures prominently into the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite and the Teddies Around Town, but hundreds of people use it for everything Teddy Bear Suite related.

The bears make you smile

So, whether you join in the fun of sharing photos or videos from the Teddy Bear Suite, or follow us for fundraising updates, this is our prime social media way to go.

What Is The Teddy Bear Suite

Now entering our 11th enchanting year, the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite, created and sponsored by Point B Realty, is a magical holiday tradition where family memories are made, and the money raised goes to help the Martha’s Vineyard Boys And Girls Club and their vital after school services and food program H2K used by hundreds of families across the Island every week. We now hope to bring our 11-year total close to well over $300,000 with your help.
