The United Buddy Bears promote living together in peace and harmony on their global tour. Attended the launch of the United Buddy Bears exhibition at Pavilion KL few days ago, under the patronage of the Sultan of Selangor as well as with the support of the Kuala Lumpur Mayor, Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail.

143 bears are being displayed right at the entrance of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Jalan Bukit Bintang. There will be numerous charity activities taking place during the weeks of the exhibition. The programme of activities will include visits of children from various homes and schoolchildren, colouring activities for children as well as an auction of some of the life-size United Buddy Bears at the end of the exhibition to raise funds for Malaysian children charities.

Art and Culture:
Each Buddy Bear shows the individual design created by different artists on behalf of their native countries. The international artists’ different styles are joined together in one work of art, spreading zest for life. The diverse design of the Buddy Bears – always typical for the respective countries – enables the visitors to experience a journey around the globe.

The Buddy Bears stand together “hand in hand”, symbolising the future vision of a peaceful world. Each bear stands for the people of the different countries and their culture, yet not for political systems.

Buddy Bear activities and aid for children in need have formed an inseparable unit. To date, around €1,800,000 (November 2011) have been raised through donations and auctions in aid of UNICEF and local children’s relief organisations.
