Lake Havasu City, Arizona - December 2019

Lake Havasu City Eagle Riders #4299 started a cuddly movement by selling and donating stuffed teddy bears fitted with a motorcycle jacket and the Eagle Riders emblem on the back. In order to get the project started, five local Eagle Riders from #4299 chipped in to make the initial purchase of 500 bears. The goal is that the money raised from those bears can help the organization purchase even more bears, with excess money being donated to local charities. #4299 member Tom O’Brien originally came up with the idea of the Charity Bear.
