Now, 175,000 stuffed toys and almost 15 years later, Claire bear’s is looking to widen her catchment area and expand the program. She envisions inviting others from the Diaspora to help send stuffed toys to the following locations on her list:
- Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba
- Bayit Cham in Nahariya
- Tel Hashomer Hospital at Sheba
- One Family Fund
- Matnas in Gilo
- Miklat bat Melech and Nigunim
- Emunah Sara Herzog Children’s Center in Afula
- Migdal Ohr in Migdal ha- Emek
- Neve Shalom near LaTroun Armed Corps
- Emunah' s Achuzat Sarah in Bnei Barak
- Emunah's Maon in Ramleh
- No 2 Violence in Hertziliya
- Where would you like to send the toys?
If you send the duffel of toys via El Al with a paying passenger $100, then the El Al office needs to be notified ahead of time, that you are carrying Claire’s bears on board.
