And the Winning Name of the Newest Big Bear to Join the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Is……


Welcome Nemsha to the teddy bear suite family. You join Edgar, TisBeary, Chappy, Obie (OB), Quinn (Aquinnah) and Lambert. You are our first grey bear and we love you already for how unique you are.

Hope you’re ready for all the love you will get from kids from one to 92! Your sweet smile will melt hearts throughout the holiday, and you soft belly is the best for hugs.

With you, our other big bears, and the hundreds of little ones that make up the teddy bear suite, we will be a special place for so many people, a place where holiday memories are made.

Come see Nemsha this weekend and throughout December. The bears are waiting for you!

Also, if you love Nemsha as much as we do, you can win him/her. Nemsha’s twin is at Rosewater Market. There you can buy raffle tickets to make this adorable bear all yours. Tickets are $5.00 or 5 for $20.00

We may be basking in the warm and fuzzy glow of all the bears, but we’re also working hard to raise money for the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club’s Healthy Happy Kids, H2K, a program that addresses childhood hunger on the Island.

H2K provides 100’s of Island kids free, healthy snack after school. From oatmeal, to veggies, to chicken tenders, to fruit, there is plenty for kids to have when they walk through the Club’s doors.

Why is this so important? Well, so many kids go hungry and don’t have enough to eat. For some kids, lunch would be the last meal they have until 6:00 p.m. or later. And if you’ve ever seen lunch at school, you know that kids only have about 20 minutes to eat. After settling in and chatting a bit, there’s no time at all.

Since introducing Healthy Happy Kids last year, the Club has seen dramatic improvements in behavior and overall happiness of kids in the after school program. Happy bellies equal happier kids.

The holidays are such a special time. A time of presents, friends, and family and celebration.  Making the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite part of you holiday tradition and giving to the Boys & Girls Club is helping provide the safety and happiness of a basic need, food. 

Please give generously to this year’s event. Know that every dollar goes directly to Healthy Happy Kids. The suite has a suggested donation of $5.00, and you can also donate on line, click here.
