Buddy Bears
Buddy Bear

By taking part in the Buddy Bear program, you can experience how generosity heals through the AdventHealth Foundation West Florida.

Every time a compassionate community member purchases a bear through Buddy Bear, a child patient at one of our local AdventHealth hospitals receives a matching teddy bear with a special note from the donor.

What happens if you want to donate more than one bear? 

$25 = One bear for you and one bear for a buddy 

$50 = Two bears for you and two bears for two different buddies 

$75 = Three bears for you and three bears for three different buddies 

$100 = Four bears for you and four bears for four different buddies 

If you would like to donate more than one bear for a buddy, but wouldn't like more than one bear for yourself, please let us know in the custom message section of the donation page and we will send your extra bears to additional buddies. 

We also ask that in the custom message section on the donation page, you write a note of encouragement for your buddy/buddies in the hospital. We will send that note with the Buddy Bear.

The Buddy Bear program not only brings comfort and joy to children who might be scared during a hospital stay, but 100 percent of Buddy Bear proceeds go to the AdventHealth Foundation West Florida to fund essential pediatric programs throughout our local hospitals. When you buy a Buddy Bear, you make a difference in a child’s life.

Purchase price includes standard shipping and handling: 10 business days.
