"I make bears for kids in hospital and people all around the world to make them happy"
We believe in reality-changing projects that rebuild concepts and redefine the dialogue between people. We’ll share some of these here with you.
Celinununu salutes Campbell Reme for his amazing handsewn/homemade teddy bear project dedicated to bringing a smile to ill children’s faces and some hope and light to kids who have been abused or traumatized in any other way.
It all started six years ago when then, 9-year-old Campbell, wanted to purchase Christmas gifts to hand out at the local hospital in his hometown in Tasmania. Although a heartwarming idea, he soon realized that this wish was a bit above his or his family’s budget. So, instead of giving up on his idea, he decided that he would create It by himself. He decided he would make teddy bears for the kids and proceeded unto discovering how to create patterns and learned to sew his mom’s sewing machine. The beginning was a bit slow; it took some time for Campbell to get the grip of making the bear designs, handling the machine and creating bears that would make the kids thrilled!
But now, at the age of 15, Campbell sews at least one, “one-of-a-kind” teddy bear a day and is spreading his extreme kindness worldwide. He has since expanded his goodwill and now also organizes special events and cruises meant to help and support families that deal with sickness by enjoying some down and relaxation time.
Campbell founded an organization named “Project 365” and by now has given hundreds of his handmade bears to children across the globe. We are proud and thrilled to have learned about and from this extraordinary human being.
