Meet America’s new safety icon:



First, there was Smokey-the-Bear... and now, there’s ‘Safe T Bear!’

Developed by the Safe America Foundation as a mascot for safety, the first shipment of cuddly 7” bears was delivered (or should we say ‘birthed’?) this year... and is now housed at the Foundation’s Atlanta Headquarters.

Safe America is discussing with various global organizations utilizing some of these stuffed toys to comfort children after disasters. The Foundation also hopes to raise funds for its WorldSafe Fund(TM), to support disaster response as well as fight human trafficking and help returning veterans.

“We’re pleased to have developed this first-run of stuffed toys and hope to see demand force us to growing our inventory,” said Safe America CEO Len Pagano. “Whether you’re 7 or 70, you’ll find this a positive symbol reinforcing affection while doing serious good for others.”

Companies or individuals who make a $25 or more donation can receive a Safe T Bear, with 5 for $100. To order them, contact Fil at (770)-973-7233.
