This Bear Gives Back

November 8, 2022

If you are looking for a unique gift that also gives back this Holiday season Toys”R”Us has the perfect idea. In partnership with Toys”R”Us Canada, Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada is excited to introduce Sunshine, the 14th Anniversary Collectible Starlight Bear, designed by 5-year-old Noah, who was diagnosed with several congenital heart defects (CHDs) before she was even born.

By the time Noah was just six months old, she had already undergone eight surgeries—including two open-heart procedures, where additional complications required her to have a tracheostomy. Despite all the challenges, Noah is a vibrant little girl full of laughter and bright smiles! Sunshine was inspired by Noah’s radiant personality, much like the sun! The purple bow and paw accents symbolize her favourite colour, and even match Noah’s speaking valve on her trachea! A lover of hearts due to Noah’s many CHD diagnosis, Sunshine’s heart patch represents all the obstacles that this shining young girl has overcome.

Proceeds from the sale of Sunshine will help Starlight Canada continue to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families, just like Noah’s. —Vita Daily
