20,372 teddy bears
According to their website, the Portland Winter Hawks host a “Teddy Bear Toss” once a season. After their first goal, fans toss out teddy bears onto the ice to give to kids in local hospitals and other children in times of crisis. On November 24, 2007 fans broke the old record of 15,540 and donated 20,372 stuffed animals.
What a great idea and what a great response. Why doesn’t the church do more of this?
