Nicole Javorsky - Cubs For Coping

Nicole Javorsky, Cubs for Coping

Nicole Javorsky is a teenage dynamo who mobilizes hundreds of volunteers to hand-make teddy bears that are given to people in hospitals as a way to lift their spirits and connect people with one another in very empathic, compassionate ways. Her impact grant will be used to help launch a college ambassador program to engage more young people in this simple, heart-to-heart connection.
