BC Liquor Stores say Share-a-Bear with someone in need

Buy a Share-a-Bear and its twin will be donated to community charity

BC Liquor Stores are encouraging British Columbians to give to those less fortunate this holiday season by participating in the 25th annual Share-a-Bear campaign.

From now until Christmas, or while quantities last, customers can buy a Share-a-Bear for $12 at any BC Liquor Store and have its ‘twin’ teddy bear donated to a local community charity.

Each year, BC Liquor Store employees select charities in their communities that help families in need – from children’s charities to shelters and hospitals – and deliver donated Share-a-Bears over the holidays.

This year’s Share-a-Bears are plush white-and-black teddy bears dressed in bright red, puffy vests featuring a sparkling snowflake on the lapel.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Share-a-Bear campaign is one of the ways the BC Liquor Distribution Branch demonstrates its commitment to social responsibility in communities across the province.

Last year, BC Liquor Stores customers purchased more than 24,000 Share-a-Bears.

More than 575,000 bears have been donated to charities helping children and families in need since 1989.
