bear hugs

the bear hugs program from face amusement

Bear Hugs is a program that started with just a simple idea between a few coworkers that eventually exploded into a program that involved the entire company. At FACE Amusement, we wanted to do something bigger than ourselves and give back. Bear Hugs plan is simple: win a bear, give a bear. We have partnered with Ronald McDonald houses in multiple states to get these bears out to as many children as possible. With every FACE bear won in our claw machines, we will donate a bear to a child at Ronald McDonald House. Our goal is to donate 5,000 bears by the end of the year! We can only do that with your support! We challenge everyone that sees our specially designed claw machines to play so that we can give out as many bears as possible! Follow us on social media to stayed tuned for updates on our goal, what we’re working on, and contests to win some exciting prizes! (link all FACE accounts i.e FB & Instagram).
