Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation was one of 10 organizations to be awarded a $10,000 grant from Hospira Foundation.  This helped our organization be eligible to enter into the Phase 2 of the Hospira Foundation Grant Challenge and possibly win $100,000 for our amazing Bear Hugs video.  However, in order for Bear Necessities to be the chosen organization to be awarded these funds, we need your help.  Can you ask at least 50 of your contacts to please vote for our video?  Each individual can vote once from each of their devices (phone, desktop, or ipad) 
The video that receives the most votes will win the Grant Challenge.  You can visit the website at: to view all of the videos and vote for our Bear Hugs video.  As a reminder, the voting period will run through 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 12.  
On behalf of all the children affected by pediatric cancer, thank you so much for your support!  We CAN do it if we have your help!
