United Airline Bear to support kids in need

united airlines teddy bear

For the third year in a row, United Airlines and the American Cancer Society are releasing a limited edition teddy bear sporting the name of a cute-but-horrendous pun. Year one saw the huggable “Kenny Hugyou”, followed by his sister the next year “Maye I. Hugyou”. This year’s bear is the third-born in the family, “Holden Hugyou”. I can’t wait to hear what they come up with next year. Ivana Hugyou? Lemmy Hugyou? Kishan Hugyou?

For the third year in a row, for a $50 donation (or donation of 7500 United miles), United will donate one bear to a child suffering from cancer in one of 40 children’s hospitals around the country. It’s rare that $50 can go so far.

For a donation of $250, you can have a bear delivered both to a sick child and to a loved one in your life, so he or she can enjoy the oversized (14 inch) teddy bear by Gund (which is the most huggably soft bear you’ll find anywhere). You can also use the opportunity to teach your child about the importance of caring and supporting kids like them who are suffering and in need.
