Aware Bears aims to create an awareness of Cerebral Palsy and improve people’s understanding of the challenges people living with CP and their families face. They aim to change the perception of what people with disabilities are capable of by highlighting and celebrating the achievements of those living with Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities. Accepting a disability is a process with many ups and downs and Aware Bears wants to ensure that people are able to focus on the positive.
What Do Aware Bears Do?
Aware Bears are stuffed bears with the same disability as you! Your Aware Bear may have CP, wear a brace or even have a visual impairment. You can have an Aware Bear visit your child or your school if you are in South Africa, or you can have one of the many characters from the Aware Bears family write your child a letter of support so they can feel connected to the characters and their adventures.
The Aware Bears aren’t the only animals here to help! There is a large array of characters waiting to meet your child through the online audio Never-Ending Stories. You can even sign up to receive their email newsletter once a month so you can keep up to date with all that’s happening with the crew! Be sure to check out their stories here too!
