Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh
We chose this charity because my Second Cousin, Reagan, has Down Syndrome. Reagan was the inspiration for the new character in Bonkers The Bear Goes To Washington, Reagan The Rabbit. Reagan would always have a stuffed rabbit with her so I felt it was the perfect character for the book.
Reagan and her family live up in the Pittsburgh area and participate in the Buddy Walk every year.
ABOUT THE BONKERS THE BEAR FOUNDATION
The Bonkers The Bear Foundation is dedicated to raising money for a number of Charities and Foundations in 2022. My goal is to raise a ton of money this year and I will let you know how much we have raised throughout the year.
There a number of ways you can raise money for the different charities this year. The first is by donating directly to the charity. If you go to the link below of any of the charities listed below, it will take you to the Facebook post where you can donate directly to the charity. The second way is by going to my Spreadshirt shop by clicking on the Merch tab. It will take you to my Spreadshirt shop where you can purchase shirts, hoodies, mugs, and much more. 100% of my profits will go towards the charity that is currently on going. The third way is by purchasing anything from the Bookstore where I have both Bonkers The Bear books and a few stickers for sale. 20% of my profits will go towards the charity that is currently on going. The last way is by purchasing the Bonkers The Bear Foundation Vinyl Sticker in the Bookstore. 100% of the Proceeds will go toward the charity that is on going.
Thank you everyone that has donated and I am excited for what 2022 has in store for us.
