Buy a customized AdventHealth / Tampa Bay Lightning teddy bear for $25.

For every $25 you spend, you'll receive one Buddy Bear and a pediatric patient at one of our local AdventHealth West Florida hospitals will receive one Buddy Bear. 

  • $25 = One bear for you and one bear for a buddy
  • $50 = Two bears for you and two bears for two different buddies 
  • $75 = Three bears for you and three bears for three different buddies 
  • $100 = Four bears for you and four bears for four different buddies 

If you would like to purchase more than one bear for a buddy, but wouldn't like more than one bear for yourself, please let us know in the comment section of the checkout page and we will send your extra bears to additional buddies.

Thank you for your support of the Buddy Bear program. You are providing a comforting buddy to children who might be scared and lonely during their hospital stay.
