Bears get help with fundraiser

Bear paw mittens and stuffed teddy bears that can be warmed in the microwave are available at Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut in Woodgrove Centre.

The store is hosting a fundraiser for Bears Matter, a Nanoose Bay-based organization that raises money for organizations that do bear conservation work.

Proceeds from every sale of bear paw mittens ($25/adults, $20/kids) and warm up teddy bears ($26-$40) go toward seven charities in B.C. and around the world.
