Packaging & Mailing Teddies

Please find a lightweight cardboard box. Depending on the amount of teddies you have to mail, consider the size of the box. Line the box with a large garbage bag and place the teddies inside. You can "squish" the teddies a little; we will fluff them up when we unpack them.

Please complete and print the form below to be included inside the box. We will send a note once the teddies are received.

Close and tape the top of the box, write the following on the outside of the package ’Hand knitted teddy bears-gift for charity-no value', and then address the box as stated below.

For our North American friends please use the address below to mail or bring in your donations. West coast volunteers now can mail their boxes to the following addresses from Canada and the US for convenience. Toronto address will receive any and all teddies mailed here from anywhere.

Why put "no value" on the box? All packages are inspected at the Canadian Border and Canadian Customs will put a price on the contents for duty and taxes. Our organization does not have any cash; all our work is done by volunteers. Therefore, we cannot pay any duties on these shipments and they will be returned to the sender.

We love to receive any and all teddies, and applaud all the wonderful volunteers who knit them and the above will make sure we get them and will be able to pass them on to the ones who need them most: the children.
