Support our work Trauma Teddies Our Trauma Teddy initiative started out initially to comfort children who have been sexually assaulted, it has now evolved into a fundraising campaign. We put out an appeal in the summer calling for people to send in handmade knitted teddy bears. Our organisation has since received almost 500 trauma teddies, which have been given to children during their counselling sessions. Our CEO says, "It's just something that makes that person feel special, believed and heard." If you would like to support STARS in this important work, download the knitting pattern or crochet pattern and pick up your needles! Please email [email protected] once your teddies are ready for service.
