The introduction of the Togetherness bear is more than just pandemic related Togetherness -where we all await the opportunity to be together with our family and friends again. Togetherness Bear also personifies acceptance and inclusivity – as well as being one with yourself and knowing you have a lot to give to this world.
Care Bears have a motto, along with their name. Togetherness Bear’s motto is “Love All.” Love all your flaws, love all your strengths – and love all others for their differences too.
The heart-shaped belly badge on the Togetherness Bear has all the colors of the rainbow. Plus, the fur is multi-colored too. What makes the fur pattern even more special is that no two bears look exactly the same. Just like no two people look the same!
The Togetherness Bear is something that parents, caregivers, therapists, and teachers can use to foster conversations about differences and acceptance. The Bear can also spark creativity among children on how they can bring the world – and the people in it – together.
