Buddy Bears 2022 for Children's Hospitals & More!

Since 2017 Buddy the Elf has visited Greenville each year at Christmas to deliver teddy bears to all of the children at Prisma Children's Hospital. In 2018 he started visiting Serenity Place as well, and then added teddy bear deliveries to the Travelers Rest Police & Fire Departments, Tigerville FD, and Duncan Chapel FD. This year we will also be partnering with Greenville's Shriners Hospital for Children. 248 bears, or possibly even more!!

All of the teddy bears are bought with donations to this project.

In 2021, thanks to the generosity of Travelers Rest United Methodist Church, we now ALSO have a way to donate tax deductible. If you want to do that, please visit TRMethodist.net, select Give, and select the Buddy Project. NOTE: Donations sent through this GoFundMe are NOT tax deductible.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, and be sure to check out our annual videos at ElfInGreenville.com.
