It's a Very Beary Christmas!

Very Beary Christmas Tree at Children's HospitalEach year, the Festival of Trees features Goodwill's signature tree, "A Very Beary Christmas." This nine-foot tree is decorated top to bottom with brand-new teddy bears-- usually about 300 furry friends adorn the branches of this festive fir.

A Very Beary Christmas is auctioned off at the Festival of Trees, with the proceeds benefiting the Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation.  However, a unique tradition started at our very first Festival.  Instead of the keeping the tree for him/herself, the purchasers of this tree have donated it to an area children's hospital or other children's charity.
