Post something positive you're doing today. Include your favorite cuddle friends too!

Hi everyone. We are doing great and hope you are too. We are hoping to be able to get back out there and start collecting again when it is safe. Thank you to everyone who has reached out and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Hey everyone, if you've been cleaning like we have, then we know you have some bags of stuffed animals laying around that you'd love for us to pick up when the quarantine is all over. We ask you to clean as many of them as you can (if they have motors or take batteries, please separate and don't wash them as this will potentially ruin those mechanisms) through the gentle cycle and either air dry or a low tumble dry. We want to keep everyone safe and we are looking at getting back out there as soon as we can!

Hey everyone. Please be safe during this time. If you have cuddle friends you would like to donate, we ask that you wash them on the gentle cycle in the washer. This will help keep everyone safe once we all are able to get back out there. Thanks!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Parades are being cancelled across the country due to coronavirus, including in Chicago, so we are celebrating virtually today and bringing you a look at what the green dye in the Chicago River would look like if it made it all the way down to the South Branch Bridge. We've done a lot of work on this bridge over the years, from a physical inspection to remedial design services.

We're also illuminating the logo in our headquarters green in celebration of Gabby's Acts of Kindness. This Mechanicsburg, PA foundation was established by 10-year-old local Gabby Kerchner. You may have seen Gabby featured on ESPN recently for collecting over 10,000 stuffed animals for the Hershey Bears’ Teddy Bear Toss. Check out their page for more info.

We picked up this bag of #cuddlefriends two days ago. There are a lot of #smiles in there! We are learning estimation, how many do you estimate are in this bag? Leave your answers in the comments.

03/11/2020

Last night we picked up some cuddle friends. This morning we had someone drop some off that the house. Tomorrow, dad goes out and picks up from five more families.

Through the end of February, we had 21 different deliveries of cuddle friends for over 1,100 and dad is still trying to get all the reveal videos up on our YouTube channel (he said he's going to work on it Saturday when he's in Hershey).

We will have 7 more videos to shoot tomorrow night! We are so excited and so grateful to everyone who has helped.

We also have scheduled three more Cuddle Drives and hoping for a fourth.

There are going to be a lot of smiles delivered to kids this December. Thank you for your support!

How We Got The Name

Dads give great hugs and our dad always gives us β€œgreat big bear hugs”. When he gets a hug from us, he says it’s a β€œgreat big cub hug”. Since we want to deliver all these cuddle friends and deliver all these hugs, we decided the name β€œGreat Big Cub Hugs” would be a way for us to deliver those hugs to kids like us.

We hope you’ll join us and help us deliver some great big cub hugs to kids who need them. Our goal this first year is to contribute 1,000 cuddle friends to the Hershey Bears Teddy Bear Toss in December. The friends will then be delivered to children throughout Central Pennsylvania through a variety of organizations that work with the Bears. If you would like to donate, please check out one of our events or contact us at [email protected] to set-up a time to connect.
