Why Blue Bear Aware?

Our children and their families are the stongest advocates for developing greater allergy and anaphylaxis awareness in our neighbourhoods and communities. Rather than hide a health concern, we want children and their families to feel comfortable speaking to peers, teachers, coaches, etc. To help assist in this communication, we design t-shirts that have fun, fashionable and trendy graphics so children feel confident and cool wearing them. We don't think a literal stop sign or a piece of masking tape stuck on a child's back listing thier allergies makes them feel good about themselves. Got an idea for a graphic? Send it our way-- we're always eager to hear what kids and families want!
