Help MinMinBear live her best life!
MinMinBear is inspired by the real-life Mindy, a woman who is not able to live her best life because she needs a new kidney. Because she’s been so sick, she’s been missing out on so much. The challenge encourages people to show where these stuffed bears go, how they are loved, and to share MinMinBear’s story…

To get the word out, AlbieBear and WinskiBear created the MinMinBear Challenge and then set out on a mission to visit all 50 states to share MinMinBear's story, in hopes of helping her find the perfect kidney match.

They hope that this challenge will not only help Mindy, but it will also help others like her, who wait for a life-saving organ transplant. 

The bears invite every person to join the challenge and become part of the conversation about the importance of organ donation. If you want to join the challenge, check out the instructions below. You can use your favorite stuffed animal or purchase MinMinBear and all of her friends in our shop.

Live Your Best Life
