Without smiles there would be no peace."

Our charity has initiated another project entitled "Operation Teddy Bear" whereby our youth & adult volunteers stuff new teddy bears & place a Heavenly Productions T-shirt on it & then the Teddy Bears are donated to Children Hospitals, schools and children in need. These Teddy Bears are now in the hands of children from Ghana, Africa, to the countries of Jamaica & Haiti, Bronx, Far Rockaway & Philadelphia, Valhalla and Yonkers, NY.
