About Us
Mountain Bear Fan Club is a nonprofit organization which provides teddy bears to children of all ages, where love, solace and comfort can make a difference. Our bears are given to sick, injured, lonely or traumatized children and the forgotten elderly.  Teddy bears do make a difference.

 Mountain Bear Fan Club was founded in 1991 by Toni Lagunoff when she gathered seven of her friends to share how teddy bears comfort and help people smile during trying times.

 Mountain Bear Fan Club distributes over 10,000 stuffed animals annually.  The recipients of our “gifting” include hospitals, social service agencies, sheriff and fire departments, the CHP and local service clubs, all who help deliver the animals to those in need  of a hug. 

 Mountain Bear Fan Club is a nonprofit USA IRS tax-exempt 501 (C) 3 corporation and donations are tax deductible.

Mountain Bear Fan Club is a den of Good Bears of the World, an international organization that operates by this ideal: to ease loneliness and inspire love and compassion through gifts of teddy bears.
