Booster Club
Boosters put the FUN in FUNdraising! 

What is a Booster Club Membership?


A Lifetime Booster Club Membership can be purchased for any of your loved ones who are not human; your teddy bears, bunnies, dolls, cats, dogs, etc.


Boosters are encouraged to raise money for GBW’s Bear Bank and/or to collect and distribute teddy bears where needed.


History: The Booster Club was started in the 1990's to honor Barb Troxel, a wonderful teddy bear artist and big supporter of GBW who passed away unexpectedly.

She made an edition of 2 Glory bears for Clarion Teddy Bear Event.

One bear was purchased by a radio journalist from Japan and the other by our very own Mike Cousino. The spark ignited the idea that people wanted their bears and pets to be part of GBW; The Booster Club was initiated!

Boosters Peter Bear and Ima Rabbit (Lucidi) asked us to include their message on our website about the importance of conserving endangered and threatened species! They sent this picture of (front row) Peter and Ima and (back row) Clio the Clouded Leopard, Jade the Panda and her baby Ming and Coca Cola Polar Bear.

Booster Rudder B. Wu and his human, Jean, have a yearly tradition to take Fortune Cookies to their local Fire Station on major holidays. They do this to thank the Firepersons and Emergency Techs for working and being away from their loved ones! Rudder is posing in this picture with some of the "goodies" they took recently.

Boosters Peter Bear and Ima Rabbit of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania are eagerly awaiting the opening of the Star Wars movie with their new friend Chewbacca! These bears all belong to Mary and Don Lucidi.

February 2015 - Terrie with her son, David who is holding the Ohio State mascot, Brutus and Terrie holding Buckeye, the newest Booster who is excited about working with other GBW Boosters to promote GBW!

February, 2015 - Boosters Theodore Humanski (r) is shown with Theodora Jean Suellan Rhinebear. They met at a teddy bear convention over 30 years ago and it was love at first sight. Theodore lives in Toledo, Ohio with his human Sandy Humanski. Theodora lives in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. There have been several trips so the bears can have some “fur time” together and they are loyal “paw pals”. Theodore decided Theodora should be a Booster Club Member and signed her up. She was thrilled to receive a Christmas card from Bailey Bear Snyder!

Here are some of the Booster Bears in attendance at the Booster Bash, during the 2015 Teddy Bear Jubilee in Kansas City, MO. Their humans always have so much fun at this convention too.

Carol Moless and her hubby took Booster Briskey in his snow outfit to Mt. Rainer. They rode up almost 7,000 ft. in the new gondola. Carol said, “I enjoy GBW, Bear Tracks and spreading good cheer with bears. Bears are just so much fun."
