'Share' a bear when buying a bottle
BC Liquor Stores throughout the province have welcomed the arrival of twin teddy bears for the Share-a-Bear campaign.
Customers purchase twin teddy bears for $11 and then “share” one of the bear twins with a local community charity.
Store staff donate the “shared" bear to families in need through children’s charities, shelters and hospitals.
Last year, more than 27,000 bears were donated to families with children in need, while more than 400,000 bears have been donated since the program began in 1989.
