Dad is losing weight, we need him to bulk up to carry all the cuddle friends for us!


Post something positive you're doing today. Include your favorite cuddle friends too!


Hi everyone. We are doing great and hope you are too. We are hoping to be able to get back out there and start collecting again when it is safe. Thank you to everyone who has reached out and we look forward to seeing you again soon.


Hey everyone, if you've been cleaning like we have, then we know you have some bags of stuffed animals laying around that you'd love for us to pick up when the quarantine is all over. We ask you to clean as many of them as you can (if they have motors or take batteries, please separate and don't wash them as this will potentially ruin those mechanisms) through the gentle cycle and either air dry or a low tumble dry. We want to keep everyone safe and we are looking at getting back out there as soon as we can!


Getting some outdoor PE time today since we can't be out collecting right now. Once we are able to again, we will be happy to schedule a time to pick up from you!


Hey everyone. Please be safe during this time. If you have cuddle friends you would like to donate, we ask that you wash them on the gentle cycle in the washer. This will help keep everyone safe once we all are able to get back out there. Thanks!


Is it possible to get any more beautiful! Putting on a homemade beauty mask today!!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Parades are being cancelled across the country due to coronavirus, including in Chicago, so we are celebrating virtually today and bringing you a look at what the green dye in the Chicago River would look like if it made it all the way down to the South Branch Bridge. We've done a lot of work on this bridge over the years, from a physical inspection to remedial design services.

We're also illuminating the logo in our headquarters green in celebration of Gabby's Acts of Kindness. This Mechanicsburg, PA foundation was established by 10-year-old local Gabby Kerchner. You may have seen Gabby featured on ESPN recently for collecting over 10,000 stuffed animals for the Hershey Bears’ Teddy Bear Toss. Check out their page for more info.

How We Got The Name

Dads give great hugs and our dad always gives us β€œgreat big bear hugs”. When he gets a hug from us, he says it’s a β€œgreat big cub hug”. Since we want to deliver all these cuddle friends and deliver all these hugs, we decided the name β€œGreat Big Cub Hugs” would be a way for us to deliver those hugs to kids like us.

We hope you’ll join us and help us deliver some great big cub hugs to kids who need them. Our goal this first year is to contribute 1,000 cuddle friends to the Hershey Bears Teddy Bear Toss in December. The friends will then be delivered to children throughout Central Pennsylvania through a variety of organizations that work with the Bears. If you would like to donate, please check out one of our events or contact us at [email protected] to set-up a time to connect.
