Just read this sales pitch from the World Bear Project:
Founded in 2008, the World Bear program began with a mother’s love and ends with you today.
It began with a young boy in a poverty-stricken section of South Africa, loved nothing more than his stuffed toy, a simple teddy bear. He also had a passion for learning about new places and would stare at pictures of different lands for hours.
Unfortunately, the boy was stricken with ALS at a young age and is already bedridden. His mother sent his stuffed bear to relatives in the Netherlands so he could see his bear in pictures in new and wonderful places. Unfortunately and accidentally, the bear was lost in the mail and never reached its destination.
After hearing the story from his mother, we became passionate about spreading our new found friend’s story to everyone, and using his mother’s idea to let her child see the world outside his room, and make many new friends.
So we ask you, please accept this large cutout of the boy’s bear and let your children take a picture with the bear. Anyone and anywhere is great, we just want more pictures of more friends for our friend.
Please aid our cause in brightening the future of this little boy, and bringing the world closer to him, and closer together!
Doesn’t that sound just heart warming? Until you see the picture of the bear that is:
Yes, the great powers that be on the intenet have set up a legit looking scam to get parents the world over to voluentary have their children pose with Pedo Bear. Oh how I simply cannot wait for these pictures to slowly start coming in, clearly some parents will be clueless. But the real fun will come when someone tries to sue someone else about this, thinking that Pedo Bear is a real life pedophile. Oh, the day that happens will be a great day indeed!
