Last year, the Spoonflower community came together for the first ever International RARE Bear Sew-in supporting RARE Science, and you blew us away with your generosity! We are excited to announce that on March 18th, Spoonflower will be hosting our 2nd annual International RARE Bear sew-in for the one-of-a-kind children supported by RARE Science. It’s time to spring into action for kids!
RARE Science is a national non-profit that helps find cures for kids with rare diseases. The RARE Bear program is a grassroots community-driven outreach initiative for kids with rare disease. Community volunteers create one-of-a-kind teddy bears for one-of-a-kind “rare kids.”
For local community members, we invite you to join us in the Spoonflower Greenhouse on Saturday, March 18 from 11am-3pm to help sew a RARE Bear. To learn more about the event and RSVP, please click here. If you’re not located near the Spoonflower HQ, don’t worry, there’s still an opportunity to help! Quilt guilds, sewing groups and individuals are encouraged to host their own RARE Bear sew-in to join the fun. To request supplies for a RARE Bear sew-in with your organization, please click here.
If sewing just isn’t your thing ( it’s alright, we understand!) but you’d like to support the RARE Bear program, we encourage you to donate to their Send a RARE Bear fundraiser. Just a $7 donation sends one bear to one child in the US and a $20 donation sends one bear to one child internationally.
Will you be joining us on the 18th? Be sure to comment below and don’t forget to share photos of your sew-in by using the tags #spoonflower and #RAREbeararmy.
