One Girl Rallies Entire School to Donate Bears

02/23/07 -- Jeannie Blaylock  - JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Teachers say it teaches a beautiful lesson. At John Stockton Elementary one student inspired her entire school to donate bears to Buddy Bears.

She had a very special and emotional reason to do that.

We're collecting bears to give to chemotherapy patients around the First Coast. We'll even send them to families members fighting cancer any where in the world. No one will ever be charged a penny for the bears or even postage.

If you still want to donate NEW bears please bring them by First Coast News as soon as you can. We're wrapping up our bear drive now.

Soon we'll announce the GRAND TOTAL. It's going to be incredible to see how many bears people have donated.
