The Joe Joe Bear Foundation was created in memory of Joseph David Ordaz who passed away. He was the Godson of the founder and asked her for a teddy bear to hold while he was alone so that he could feel like she was with him always. The charity was created to keep Joe’s memory alive and to help others in the same situation. It saddened him to hear the children crying at night in the hospital when they were alone and scared, he would say, “I wish I could help comfort the sick children.” Since then the Foundation has given over 20,000 teddy bears to children with life threatening illnesses.
