About Us

10 years ago Operation Teddy Bear started as a civil volunteer initiative with the main goal of making unprivileged children’s Christmas wishes in Bulgaria come true.

For the past 3 years our team has been operating on national level, visiting 7000 beneficiaries from 330 institutions and spreading love and joy in all 28 regions of the country – thus this makes us the biggest grass root Christmas Campaign in Bulgaria.

The Christmas Gift Campaign works only with NEW, individual, personal presents corresponding to exact wish lists, which comprises of the wishes of: children deprived of parental care, children at risk, children with disabilities and adults with mental disabilities. With the help of more than 20 000 donors our teams around the country manages to supply all these institutions where our beneficiaries reside or use services with much needed materials, supplies, specialized and everyday equipment. In the last 9 years our team of 28 regional managers and 130 volunteers has visited more than 17 000 children and has gifted numerous gifts.

However, as time went buy we grew up and so did our dreams for a better future of the unprivileged Bulgarian children. That is why we decided to register as an NGO and start a year-round mentoring program called “The Hidden Talents of Bulgaria” which will create an accelerator and an incubator for young gifted minds and give them the chance to pursue their dreams and realize their goals. In the first year of the program we will work with 8 youngsters and we will develop their skills and abilities in the spheres of: music (violin and Bulgarian traditional singing), Bulgarian traditional dancing, art (3D animation and design and fashion design) and sports (canoeing).

If you believe in the future of our children and you want to support them and push them to the finish line donate through our website or on our bank account or contact us: info@plushenomeche.org

More about the program and who the talents for the first year are you can find HERE.
