My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can donate to the Breakaway Foundation Buttony Bear Project.  Donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. [/p][p]The Breakaway Foundation supports children from birth to 18 who have bladder and/or bowel diversions or dysfunctions.  Buttony is a special Bear for children having surgery to create a stoma. Buttony has had similar surgery and we hope will offer comfort and friendship.[/p][p]you can follow the progress of the project on Facebook at https://Facebook.com/buttonybears[/p][p]We really appreciate all your support.[/p]

Our new born jack had a stoma made at one day old. Buttony will help tell the story when he understands and will be going to every hospital visit with us. Thank you x

A fantastic idea to comfort children and make them feel less lonely when things can be very bewildering for them and their families.

Thank you for an amazing charity. I got my button at age 29 and it was such a shock and I had a tough time accepting it. 17 years later I wouldn’t be without it, it’s changed my life for the better.
