Ari's Bears was started by 10 year old Ariella Stein, when she was in treatment for Ewing's Sarcoma.  She used her own money to buy bears and other stuffed animals to deliver to sick children.  Ariella passed away in May 2019 but her legacy lives on through her foundation.  More than bears, Ari's Bears is also raising money to fund research grants for pediatric cancer.  You can help us raise funds by joining our dance-a-thon.
