A KGAB morning show caller thinks the teddy bears drive is a great idea, and we couldn't agree more.

There are times when a horrible event has happened and a child is traumatized. That is when a bear might just be the right thing at the right time.

No matter if we are talking a house fire or a robbery attempt, or a traffic accident, kids are not yet ready to handle some of what the world might throw at them.

Handing a child a fat, soft, fuzzy toy will help comfort them at such a critical time give the child something to cling to.

Townsquare Media and Toyota of Laramie have teamed up to bring teddy bears to the first responders of Southeastern Wyoming.

From April 17 to June 1, we will collect teddy bears so that first-responders can distribute them to children during their patrol. The bears will be distributed to children suffering through traumatic situations. We are setting up drop off locations all around Cheyenne and Laramie.

Drop-off locations will have a bear-rel for easy donations.
