I'll make this short and sweet, and then provide more extensive information below.
My name is Katie Cronin I'm a senior at East Lincoln High School, I'm currently organizing a teddy bear drive, this is something that is very near and dear to my heart, . I'm collecting gently used and new teddy bears to:
Give to law enforcement officers, so they can give them to children who have been involved in an unfortunate situation such as, car accidents, domestic violence, etc.
Deliver to hospitalized children suffering from severe illnesses, both local children's hospitals and St. Jude
give them to homeless shelters for the homeless youth, and orphanages
Deliver to 3rd world countries
If you and some cast members from one tree hill, would help out for this great cause, we could greatly expand this drive and lend comfort to thousands of children ... maybe even millions?
If you would like to help me collect teddy bears in an area near you...
Please contact me ASAP.

As I previously stated I'm a senior at East Lincoln High School, located in Denver, North Carolina. Recently our school has faced a lot of unfortunate circumstances, as last year one of our own suffered through her second battle of leukemia, 2 students passed away from fatal car accidents, and just less than a month ago yet another student was diagnosed with leukemia, and last Friday a very close friend of mine and a significant figure of our senior class was airlifted to the hospital unresponsive. It's been a difficult and tragic time for the whole community. But rather than turn a blind eye to all the suffering, i proposed an idea to lend a warm heart. A Teddy bear drive - "Teddy Bears That Care". I came to this idea because I myself have a teddy bear I sleep with every night, still as a senior in high school! (embarrassing). No matter what I was going through in life, I was never alone. My teddy bear was always there, and he's a pretty good listener too! No one should ever feel alone, but the harsh reality is that millions face that feeling every day! Tragedies happen everyday. And maybe we can't do anything to stop that, but at least we can lend a little comfort when they do, a teddy bear. A small gesture that can have an immense effect! To all the children fighting for their lives in the hospital, or living in extreme poverty, a teddy bear can offer hope, and a friend, things that may have been lacking them throughout their whole lives. Let's give them a reason to fight! Let's show them that we are there for them! Let's change the world one smile at a time, one teddy bear at a time. Just in time for the holidays.
