Teddy Bear" are from the teddy bear distribution that takes place each year at Children's Hospital in Omaha. We purchase teddy bears with trooper t-shirts on them and walk around the hospital and give them to the children. There were 2 trooper dogs with us this year and they get to see the children as well.
"Wishing Well" are also from Children's Hospital in Omaha. We donate $750 each month to Children's and that goes to granting a child's wish. In 2010, with our donated money alone, 44 children were awarded wishes
