330 teddy bears cross the oceans to the children of Kebebe Tshay Orphanage.

    When Avon recently ran a promotion giving away a teddy bear with every $20 donation to the McGrath Foundation, The Children of Ethiopia Foundation encouraged friends and family to donate to Avon promotion and then donate the teddy back to the foundation to send to Ethiopia.

    Never did we imagine that 330 teddy bears would make their way to some of the most disadvantaged children living in the Kebebe Tshay Orphanage in Addis Abiba. We had enough teddies for all children to receive one to call their own.

    The photos we received back from the orphanage say it all. Smiles and happy faces abound. Having visited this orphanage and witnessing the hardships these children endure, we know how much a little comfort will mean.
