The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite is so much more than a magical holiday event. It’s also an important fundraiser for the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club food program. Did you know that the Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser has raised $216,000 in our first nine years? 2020 marks our 10th anniversary and our goal this year is to raise at least $25,000 for the vital Healthy Happy Kids program. We’re kicking the fundraising off with The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Giving Tuesday Donation Match From Point B Realty.
The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Giving Tuesday Donation Match From Point B Realty – 50 Cents For Every Dollar Donated
While we’ve pivoted and made some fun new changes to the traditional Teddy Bear Suite festivities (see Teddies Around Town below), our commitment to fundraising and the even greater needs this year, have energized us to make a big Giving Tuesday boost. Point B will make a 50% match to all online donations up to $10,000. You can donate here.
For every dollar donated online Tuesday, December 1st, Point B Realty will make a matching contribution of 50-cents per dollar. All money raised goes directly to support the vital Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club After School food program, which helps keep so many children fed and happy. Donate Now.
Won’t you help us cover the basic need of food for so many Island children?This program costs about $45,000 to run. We’d like to get as close as we can to completely covering this cost, as we have done in previous years. Every dollar donated goes directly to the Club.
The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Giving Tuesday Donation Match From Point B Realty Supports The H2K Food Program
Though there are not as many children in the After School Program so far this year, due to the pandemic, the need has never been greater. These children receive safe, pre-packaged snacks and meals that are much more expensive than in the past, when the food was prepared by staff and Club members. This cost and the knowledge that there will be more children soon, continues to drive the need to fund H2K, and the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite helps make this program possible.
The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite – Teddies Around Town Outdoor Holiday Scavenger Hunt
With an abundance of caution, we’ve modified this year’s Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite. In lieu of our magical in-person Teddy Bear Suite fun, we’ve partnered the Edgartown Board of Trade and over 30 businesses in the Village for Teddies Around Town — an outdoor, holiday scavenger hunt with a cause.
The Christmas in Edgartown Elf on the Shelf is now Teddies Around Town, a fun outdoor, safe and meaningful scavenger hunt with a cause – to support the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club.
Elves will be Bears this year, and they will go from hiding on the shelves to hiding in storefront windows, since we have capacity and safety to consider. This past weekend was the first of three Teddies Around Town weekends and it was a great success. Everybody was having fun finding the bears with the riddles, and how beary cool the prize at the end is! For more about Teddies Around Town, click here.
