How You Can Win With Teddies Around Town – Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser

Teddies Around Town Photo Contest Finale – As Teddies Around Town gets ready to wrap up at the end of the week, there is still time to participate in this new Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraising fun and awareness building campaign.

Find your favorite #mvteddybearsuite bear at participating Edgartown businesses, and snap a great, festive fun picture with a bear or two. There are special Instagram photo frames at all the locations. You can win Teddies Around Town Photo prizes and help end childhood hunger on Martha’s Vineyard by supporting the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club.

Teddies Around Town Photo Hashtags

Have some fun, use the photo frames, plus use our hashtags: #mvteddybearsuite#teddiesaroundtown#mvboysandgirlsclub#christmasinedgartown. There will be prizes awarded in two Teddies Around Town Photo categories — those who visit and shoot pictures at the most locations AND most popular photo overall. You’ve got to use the hashtags and post to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, to be in the running. 

Businesses have incentive as well. The one with the most likes and the one that raises the most money win prizes as well. Some of the bears have gone back into hibernation already (businesses are closed for the season).

Healthy Happy Kids Fundraiser

You can have a lot of fun with the Teddies Around Town Photo Contest. We bet that you will recognize a number of these bears from the #mvteddybearsuite. Don’t forget that this is a fundraiser for the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club Healthy Happy Kids program, the vital after school food program created to address childhood hunger and food scarcity on the Island. It now serves one in three public school children K-8 and is making a big difference.
