HUGGIE is my personal HIV/AIDS Awareness Bear! He was given to me as an unexpected Valentines Day gift in 2015 and has provided so much RESTORATION to my LIFE! He brought back memories from my childhood. I believe that EVERY person should be able to cherish the innocence in which memories carry. Often times as we GROW through life we forget how our precious childhood framed the little joys of being alive as an adult. I forgot who I was prior to my HIV diagnosis because I had fell into a SEVERE depression. HUGGIE reminded me that I knew what it's like to be joyful no matter what difficult situation stood/crossed my path. HUGGIE is simply a RED teddy bear representing Restoration, Hope, HIV/AIDS Awareness and more importantly for HUGS!
You wear a Red Ribbon for Me and I carry a Red Bear for YOU!
