Welcome to the Project Ed Bear Blog.

Project Ed Bear is an all volunteer 501c3 organization dedicated to providing comforts and needs for Pediatric Oncology patients throughout Ohio.

Most of our work is done through and for Akron Children's Hospital.

I have created this blog to keep you up to date on what Project Ed Bear is working on, to get your input and ideas, to stay connected with our supporters and to feature our kids.

On June 4th through 6th Akron Children's Hospital held the annual Camp Chops (for the oncology, hematology patients). Project Ed Bear was there all day on Saturday with all the crafts, the photo booth and the laser tag. Although we are only there one day, Project Ed bear pays for the entire camp each year. We are able to do this because of people like you. THANK YOU. Pictures from camp are featured on the right side of the blog.

We have one main fundraiser ever year. The 16th annual Project Ed Bear dinner/auction will be held on Monday, November 29th at The Quaker Station in Akron. It will be a lovely evening and many of our kids will be joining us that evening. We will have complimentary valet parking. I hope you will join us.

We are currently seeking items and sponsors for the auction. I am also seeking people interested in being on our 2010 auction committee . Please leave me a comment or send me an email if you are interested in helping in any of those ways.

Have a blessed day,
Susan Summerville
