One of the best things that we heard was how much the bears made people smile when they saw them, how much they liked to hug them.

Seeing how much happiness the bears brought all around town was magical. Knowing that each bear was helping to raise money for the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club Healthy Happy Kids made Teddies Around Town a truly special addition to the #mvteddybearsuite. Next to each bear you could find a donation box for the Club. All the money raised goes directly to supporting the H2K childhood hunger program.

For the business who was most creative, had the most likes and what seems like the most fun, we have Divine Med Spa. Dr. D and the ladies had so much fun. From their 12 days of Christmas to the special treatments the bear received. Each day was more fun than the next.
