    “When I was 9, I asked my mom and dad if we could buy Christmas presents for kids in hospital,” explains Campbell, “When they told me it would cost too much I decided to make them.”

    "I decided I would make one present a day, which is 365 a year, and give them all away."

    “I have done this for two Christmases now and I love it. I make special bears to auction and fundraise for people too.”

    "Bumble, you really do bring sunshine to people's lives. It's amazing how something so simple as a teddy bear can make such a difference," says Julia, mom to one-year-old William, who is recovering from a heart transplant. "In a world where there's more take than give, where greed becomes stronger than generosity, you are the exception and I hope everyone can take a piece of your message and pay it forward."
