Comforting Children One Hug at a Time


CBz Buddies is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit serving Northern Ohio.

We provide teddy bears to first responders and domestic shelters to give to children involved in stressful situations such as an accident, domestic violence, opioid crisis, or any other frightening situation.

in 2019 we partnered with another nonprofit, Good Knights of Lorain County. They build beds for children that do not have one. We provide a cuddly, comforting teddy bear with their bedding package for these disadvantaged children.

Children are our future. By offering a means of comfort to them, we are leaving a lasting impression that we care.

Please consider helping our mission by donating so we can continue to provide these comforting bears to our children.





To provide emotional support to children involved in traumatic situations, as well as using charitable contributions to provide police and fire departments, domestic shelters. and other organizations with resources needed for youth.

Our first responders receive NO funding for such supportive actions.

Our goal is to have a teddy bear to comfort all these frightened or disadvantaged children.


CBz Buddies relies on donations to purchase new teddy bears. The bears we provide are soft and cuddly and average 10″ – 12″ in size.

We strive to purchase only quality bears.

CB is the spokes-bear for our organization. He belongs to one of our directors. His Buddies are all the bears we provide. He would like to see that children receive the same hugs and love he gave by “Comforting Children One Hug at a Time and making them feel “Bearably Better”.
