Getting Blood from The Teddy Bear

By Nate | October 18, 2007

Dreadlocked Reggae Vermont Teddy Bear gives blood in Red Cross busPutting the “drive” in blood drive, the Red Cross bus pulled into the parking lot this morning for a day of blood donations from the Bear Crew.

I recruited Michelle Delisle’s own Rasta-“Bear”-ian Teddy Bear to lively up the bus. Friendly Red Cross staff members got into the spirit, and before too long this little dreadlocked reggae Bear was making time to connect, literally, with an IV hookup of his very own*. What’s his blood type? Uh…B+?

Here’s a tip o’ the tam to all the Bear Crew, who made the time to really share their honey with people who need it, and to with the friendly and professional Red Cross folks. You all are living examples of Being Bear.

Want a Rasta-“Bear”-ian Bear? The bad news is we don’t currently make them. The good news is you can have us make one just for you.

Postscript, October 23: I just learned that we ended up donating a total of 16 pints of blood!

*In case you’re wondering, that white rectangle sticking out of the dreadlocked one’s right hand is a rubber toy bus. Y’know, so he can squeeze it every 5-to-10 seconds…

    Hey Marisa. Right now we don’t offer Rasta-“Bear”-ian Bear, but we’d be happy to make one for you. Why don’t you get in contact with us via the form at http://www.vermontteddybear.com/Static/Design-Your-Own-Bear.aspx (click the arrow image when you get there), and we can help you send a Righteous Bear.
