Teddy Bears for Children Affected by the Terrorist Attacks on September 11-Truth!
The Vermont Teddy Bear company
is asking you to come to their site and pick out a bear to be sent
to the children who lost loved ones in New York and Washington
D.C. There is no cost to you and you are asked to write a
message that will go along with the bear to a child.
The Truth: This was an authentic campaign on the part of the Vermont
Teddy Bear company, but the project is now over.

Firefighter Bears to all the families and children of the courageous
firefighters, police officers, and rescue workers who lost their lives
All you have to do is log onto http://www.vermontteddybear.com and then
click on Send Card of Compassion, pick which teddy bear you want to send
along with your message.
After you type your note of sympathy, type in your name, city and
state. That is all you have to do.
THERE IS NO CHARGE AT ALL. Again, they didn't want to send these
bear out with a company form letter instead they wanted to make it more
personalized with a note of sympathy from people of the United States. I
just thought you might want to help.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO AS MANY AS PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
