Trauma Teddies provide care in so many ways:
At last count, more than 600 volunteer knitters and knitting groups hand knit Teddies in Australia. They lovingly craft around 50,000 Trauma Teddies a year. That’s a huge number of children who each year receive the care of a teddy bear.
It takes about 5 hours to knit and finish each Teddy. By our calculations, that's a whopping 250,000 volunteer knitting hours each year – or a mind-blowing 7.5 million volunteer hours over the past 30 years.
Every Trauma Teddy is lovingly put together. They must also pass a quality control test to guarantee comfort and safety.
