All the best for 2009!

A very eventful year – also for the Buddy Bears - is now drawing to a close.

In the spring of 2008, the United Buddy Bears formed a spectacular circle in the heart of Warsaw. During the summer, the inhabitants of Stuttgart and their guests were delighted about the bears and in the autumn, the United Buddy Bears made a very special contribution to history.
As the first public art exhibition from abroad that was open to everybody, the bears were presented in the North Korean capital Pyongyang.

After some United Buddy Bears were sold during an auction at Breuninger in Stuttgart in November 2008, total proceeds from Buddy Bear auctions and donations are now over €1.5 Mio. With these funds, UNICEF and the Buddy Bear Help e.V. have helped children in need all over the world and will continue to do so in the future. Regular support for national children’s relief projects is another area of activity.

We would like to thank all our partners, sponsors and Buddy Bear-Fans for your commitment to our work and for all your support – prerequisites for the existence of the United Buddy Bears and their global promotion of tolerance and international understanding.

May all your wishes for 2009 come true!

Your Buddy Bear Team
