Give A Hug

ByCoB Staff







Rebecca Meckler has requested that in lieu of purchasing a gift for her Bat Mitzvah, you make a donation to her Give-A-Hug-Fund. This program will provide Build-A-Bear® dolls at Bellevue Hospital, which serves some of New York’s neediest children.

Rebecca’s decision to embrace the mission of Children of Bellevue as part of her Bat Mitzvah came after she spent several years supporting the organization. She has distributed toys in the hospital, attended events and helped host volunteers and donors in her home.

To create this project, Rebecca reached out to Build-A-Bear Workshop® and convinced the founder, Maxine Clark, that this is a worthy cause. She is proud to celebrate the spirit of Tzedakah by providing comfort to Bellevue’s patients and clients.

Children of Bellevue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and contributions to it are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
