Federal Group were proud to provide a $1000 Helping Hand to 12-year-old Hobart school boy Campbell Remess, or Bumble as he’s better known.

At the age of 9, Campbell committed to making one teddy bear each day to give away to children in hospital at Christmas. Since then his bears have also been sent to comfort parents with sick children and people affected by terrorist activity overseas.

Campbell also makes teddy bears that are auctioned off to raise funds for a range of charity groups. His efforts have earned him international fans and media attention, and his Facebook group, ‘Project 365 by Campbell’ has amassed almost 13,000 followers.

Campbell was nominated by Kingston 9/11 Manager Tai Forrester, who first learned of Project 365 when Campbell donated a bear for a Whitelion fundraiser, which sold for $180.

“Campbell is a very generous young man,” Tai said.

“He’ll use the $1000 Helping Hand to purchase a laser cutter which will make it quicker and easier for him to cut the fabric pieces he uses to make his teddy bears.”

Federal Group wishes Campbell all the best with Project 365.
