A sweet TAPS Colorado tradition is giving a Teddy bear to each sibling in a family of a loved one who served and died. These TAPS Teddy Bears, dressed in a uniform that matches that of the deceased – often a dad, mom or sibling, become a focus for private conversations and a comforting presence to hold. Donate $100 online for a bear and it will be sent to a TAPS child, along with a note identifying the giver as a caring friend, wishing them all good things. Another option is to donate $100 for a bear at the Saluting Our Fallen Heroes Songwriters Show and Dinner June 16. Write a personal note to let a child know how much we all appreciate their loved one’s service.
Bears and event tickets are available at taps.org/colorado.
