This weekend Warm Heart Bears will be participating in the “Bears That Care” online Bear Show in support of ovarian cancer research!

Ovcare is an ovarian cancer research, education and awareness program established in 2000 in partnership with Jigsaw.
The original “Bears That Care” Charity Auction began in the late 90’s and was established for the benefit of research, education and awareness of women’s gynecological cancers. After some years in hibernation, the bears returned in 2010 and 2011 to support the ongoing work of the Ovcare research team lead by Professor Greg Rice.
In 2012, in keeping with the major shift of consumers to online markets, the 2012 Bears That Care event has evolved into an online show - the proceeds from the bears sold online going to the Ovcare ovarian cancer research and test development programs being conducted by Prof Rice and his team.
WHY THE SHOW IS HELD (These 4 bears were adopted in 2011, and are examples of the bears you will find at the show this year!)
Ovarian cancer is the most lethal of all gynecological cancers
230,000 women worldwide will be diagnosed with this disease
ONE out of every TWO women who develop this disease will not survive
Unlike breast and cervical cancers, there is NO screening test for the early detection of ovarian cancer
Show Dates: Friday, 16 November – Sunday, 18 November 2012
You will be able to view all of the bears when the show opens at 12 noon (EDT, Melbourne Australia – same as EST in USA). This Show will have something for everyone! If you are an artist, collector, bear lover…and have an appreciation of fine art, you cannot afford to miss out on your chance to buy unique, OOAK bears lovingly created for the Online Charity Show.
If there is a particular bear bear you are desperate to adopt you must do so quickly as these are one-of-a-kind works of art, available for the duration of the Show.
Here is a sneak peek of Olivia from Warm Heart Bears. She will be available beginning November 16, 2012.
Thank you in advance for your support of our work - your purchases WILL make a difference to the Ovcare Research Team, and will help to change the health outcomes for all women.
I hope you will be able to attend the show this weekend. I look forward to “seeing” you there!
