Making children feel special, one bear at a time.

Taylor Bears, located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit established to help as many children feel special and loved as possible. Taylor Bears raises money for Cook Children’s Medical Center and GRACE’s Christmas Cottage, donating teddy bears to children who are sick and in need. Its mission is to heal the hearts of children both by making them feel special and loved as well as by donating money to the cardiovascular unit of Cook Children’s Medical Center. Taylor Bears also holds teddy bear drives to collect bears and deliver them to children in both of these organizations. 

My Story

Hi, my name is Taylor, and I am seventeen years old. I have a passion for service and helping children which is why I started my charity, Taylor Bears, in 2021. My goal is to donate as many teddy bears as possible to children who are sick or in need. Every bear I donate has a tag around its neck with this message, “Always remember….there is no one in the world exactly like you. You are unique, special, and loved a lot too! “ My goal is to make every child feel loved and special! I also raise money for the cardiology unit at Cook Children’s Medical center which combines my passion for helping children with my dream to become a cardiovascular surgeon one day. Taylor bears is healing children’s hearts in more ways than one! Outside of my nonprofit work, I am currently a Junior at Covenant Christian Academy where I am the newly elected student body president. I am a classically trained ballerina in a pre professional training program at Almayeva Ballet Academy where I spend countless hours training every week. I am also very honored to be serving as the current Miss Fort Worth’s Teen where I get to serve my community even more, while earning scholarship money for college! Most recently, I'm proud to announce that I've been selected to be a Yale Young Global Scholar and will spending two weeks at Yale University this summer furthering my passion for the sciences. Academic excellence, Service, Classical Ballet, and Taylor Bears pretty much sums me up!  Spreading love and kindness as well as serving others is my mission in life and the mission of Taylor Bears! ❤️
