Bear Givers is a non-profit organization committed to bringing joy to the lives of children with the gift of a teddy bear. Their "EmpowerArt" program enables children to experience the joy and pride of creating art, seeing it showcased and sold at a special exhibit, and making a meaningful contribution to their community.

The children are the stars of the opening reception. Their pride and excitement at seeing their artwork professionally framed, displayed, admired, and sold builds their self-esteem and gives them a sense of accomplishment.
