Project B.E.A.R. was founded in memory of Jeremiah Joseph Spering, who was stillborn at 37 weeks on April 17, 2008 & Vincent Joseph Spering who was born June 2, 2009 and passed away June 15, 2009.

We draw strength from our son’s namesake verse Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” The knowledge that we will one day hold our children again fills us with hope.

We in turn endeavor to provide some comfort to those who suffer a similar loss and let them know they are not alone.

Project B.E.A.R. sends teddy bears to hospitals as well as to individuals who request them, free of cost. Our bears provide tangible comfort & support to families navigating the challenging path of loss. We also send bears to families with a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit & to those struggling with infertility. Anyone suffering the pain of a child's absence is welcome to a bear. If you would like to support Project B.E.A.R. to help us continue to provide free bears, simply click the Donate to Project B.E.A.R. button to the left.

​We believe that every child is a precious blessing, no matter how short their time with us and whether or not we got to hold them in our arms or just in our hearts.

Our Mission
