Posted by GreaterGoodness

Every year, the Calgary Hitmen, a minor league team, holds a “Teddy Bear Night” where fans are encouraged to throw plush toys on the ice when the home team scores their first goal. This year there were an estimated 28,000 plushies tossed on the ice!!! The toys are then distributed to needy kids in the area via 50 different local charities! What fun! Look at the players getting into it!

Here's something to restore your faith in people.Last night the Calgary Hitmen minor league hockey team held their annual "teddy bear toss" game.In the 2nd period, Jordy Stallard got the first goal of the contest for the home team. Which was the signal for plush toys to be tossed on to the ice. More than TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND of them!(They're saying it's a new world record)The game was stopped for a significant time while bears of all sizes were collected.And the best part — they all go to 50 different local charities.Just think of the smiles and feelings that thousands of young kids will have when they receive one of these bears, thanks to generous hockey fans in Calgary.
