We were able to create more teddy bears within 6 months than we had in the nearly 2 years before.  Thanks to the Pollination Project, we will be able to provide handmade teddy bears for way more children and teens in hospitals, homeless shelters, and eating disorder programs than we ever have.

We have recruited roughly 100 more volunteers since receiving the grant…To me, the Pollination Project is all about enabling individuals who have passion and strong commitment to fulfill dreams of making a larger impact with their cause. If you fit this description, if you are passionate, if you are committed, you really can do a lot! The Pollination Project provides $1,000 of power for you to transform into a positive impact on your community. Do not fear that your project is too small. If you believe your project is making an impact, it is big enough and you can make it even bigger. And, bigger can mean something different for each grantee.
