Usborne Books & More is excited to partner together with Kim Munn to run a Cuddle Bear Book Drive benefiting Texas Children’s Hospital in The Woodlands, TX.

What is a Cuddle Bear Book Drive? Usborne Books & More has a book and plush set called Cuddle Bear that is all about bringing comfort through hugs. Together, the plush and bear help bring those hugs to life! Our goal is to raise funds to be able to purchase at least 90 Cuddle Bear sets to be distributed to patients at Texas Children’s Hospital.

Each Cuddle Bear set costs $25…but Usborne Books & More provides a 50% match making your donation dollars go even further. In addition, Usborne Books & More also donates 5% of each purchase of a Cuddle Bear set to The Scott Carter Foundation. In 2018, the company was able to present Scott Carter’s family with a check for $25,000 to go towards pediatric cancer research.

Texas Children’s Hospital has profoundly impacted Kim and her Family’s life:

“October 17, 2017, was a day we will never forget.

We went into the appointment to find out our baby’s gender - however, it was suddenly darkened when we were blindsided with the life changing news that our Sweet Baby Girl had the worst form of a neural tube defect called Spina Bifida, where the brain and spinal cord do not fuse together in the early gestational days. She would likely have a large spectrum of disabilities including loss of mobility, bowel and bladder issues, and would require a shunt (drain valve) in her brain – requiring repeated future surgeries.

Then GOD GAVE US HOPE. Hope through Texas Children’s Hospital.

After evaluation, we qualified for an experimental surgery, only offered by Texas Children’s Hospital. The surgery would repair our baby’s back in-utero at 25 weeks gestation – greatly improving our baby’s quality of life. That weekend we named our baby, Annie Hope.

Annie was the 46 th case and successful 37 th surgery to undergo the Minimally Invasive Fetoscopic Repair Surgery, and the repairs changed her world. Annie is our Miracle – thanks to GOD through TCH.

At her One year appointment she was cleared of never having to need a shunt in her brain, her bowel and bladder control are perfect, and she will walk. Annie will be taken care of by TCH until she is 18.

We know Annie’s outcome would have been completely different had it not been for Texas Children’s Hospital and they will forever have a place near and dear to our Family’s hearts.”

Your Contribution will go towards purchasing a cuddle bear and book for the patients who need a pick me up in their day. This seemingly small gesture reminds families who are struggling to find peace and joy, that there is HOPE and LOVE. Thank you for helping us give back to Texas Children’s Hospital in Annie Hope’s name!
