2018 Holiday for Hope Show Some Love Teddy Bear Project

"We Make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give" - Winston Churchill

Every activity and every smile is made possible by the generous donations from friends (new and old), from our generous donors Humaniq and Dreams for Kids, our dedicated volunteers and youth leaders who went on all fours in these communities to host and present these activities and gifts with the same love, fun and compassion that brought the project to life in 2010.

The smile train for the holiday for hope is moving on to the kids at the Lakka Beach community in Freetown to bring smiles, and hope during this Holiday for Hope Season. Join us as we take the journey

Meet the incredible Alus Kamara a Youth Leader and B-Gifted Volunteer who championed 2 communities this year reaching 100 kids. 

For the last of this year's Holiday for Hope 'Show Some Love, Teddy Bear Project, we are bringing you the beautiful faces of not just the children of Lakka Community, but the picturesque sceneries of the Lakka Beach environs. On Christmas day, B-Gifted Youth Leader Alus Kamara, shows how just we can continue to bring smiles and hope to the kids in Sierra Leone through the gesture of gifts that include school bags, toys, baby dolls, Teddy Bear, soccer balls, cameras etc. Our belief is that by sharing, we provide kids with hope that someone does care and that they are not alone in the aftermath of all that happened during the Ebola outbreak, mudslides (flood) and post-war effects. In turn, kids will grow up with a sense of generosity, peace in their hearts and love, and eventually learn from this and 'pass it on'. Like other communities in Sierra Leone, we also wanted to do something to bring a smile to kids dealing with these aftermaths and together with our wonderful youth leaders and volunteers, sponsors we came up with a plan. We used the proceeds raised online from crowdfunding to buy these kids items and had our volunteers go on all fours in their communities to hand out to children in Sierra Leone. To the kids we gave a smile and you brought the radiance of smile back to us and our numerous supporters. Humaniq, Dreams for Kids

B-Gifted we will welcome you again in 2019

"And I was just like these kids. And knowing I can give back that smile and pass it on one kid at a time, I was filled with joy and happiness, and the simple fact that I can help to bring that radiance and a glow, a smile and hope was at once reassuring.
With a generation of young people who have known only challenges and hardship caused by a multiplicity of factors, of war, Ebola, and recent flooding and hardship, I think that these moments of smiles and happiness will help them shed off that heavy burden of grief that they endure. In turn these children will have the nurturing experience of passing on the simple acts of kindness, love and compassion that is also exemplified and got through the warm embrace of a doll.
I hope that through those inspiring youth volunteers and our numerous friends we hope to continue to do that from Baltimore to Freetown to Bunce Island." - Andrew Benson Greene Jr.
