About Us

Delivering smiles and spreading love to children
affected with serious ailments in Wisconsin hospitals.

Overview

Team Teddy of Wisconsin works with Child Life Therapists from each of the four children hospitals in Wisconsin to visit patients that need a little break in the day and are able to create a personalized, plush, stuffed animal at their bedside.

Our goal is to raise funds and utilize those monies to provide animal building experiences at hospitals. Members of the organization not only actively participate in fundraising but directly interact with the children who benefit from the organization. All funds raised in Wisconsin STAY in the state to benefit the children in our hospitals.

History

I have been blessed with 3 extremely healthy daughters. However each one did have to spend a very short amount of time in a hospital when they were younger. It broke my heart to see all the children who were suffering and the parents’ looks of worry and concern. Seven years ago I told myself if I was ever in a position to pay it forward to patients and their families, I would. Fast forward to Spring of 2015, I was blessed with an amazing group of energetic students who bought into my dream. They recycled ink cartridges and sold root beer floats at different school events to raise over $1300. The money went to purchasing stuffed animals that were delivered to Wisconsin Children’s Hospitals before the end of the school year. Throughout the summer, I went through several volunteer processes to ensure that I would be able to take Team Teddy of Wisconsin to the next level, spreading love to children with creating plush stuffed animals bedside. The dream has become a reality!

The Mission

The Mission

Delivering smiles and spreading love to children affected with various serious ailments in Wisconsin hospitals. Our goal is to provide some relief and an emotional break during a patient's treatment and/or recovery.

1.Helping Children

Team Teddy of WI wants to provide seriously ill children in Wisconsin’s hospitals with a stuffed animal making experience. Team Teddy utilizes donations to purchase these stuffed animals and actively goes into the hospitals and does the ceremony with the children in Wisconsin.

2The Ceremony

Patients deciding what animal they would like to stuff. Once they have chosen their animal an outfit the child will then let the Team Teddy of Wisconsin member know what they would like. Together the patient and Team Teddy of Wisconsin member bring the stuff animal to life by stuffing the animal! In a bedside ceremony a relationship is formed and a memory is created. The final step in the whole ceremony is when the patient is able to individualized their animal and place a special “wish upon a star” inside their animal. This wish is done with both the patient and his/her parent!
