His name is Campbell Remess. He’s a 12-year-old boy from Australia, and he’s been making adorable teddy bears for sick kids who’re admitted in the hospital.

When Campbell was nine years old, he asked his parents around Christmas if he could buy a Christmas present each for the kids in the hospital. He was told by his parents that that would was a very expensive proposition.

So, our little boy Campbell then took out his mom’s sewing machine, and dedicated his free time-after school and studies-to making teddy bears for the children.

According to a Facebook post on the page, Project 365, Campbell has written about the same:
“My name is Campbell but everyone calls me Bumble. Im 12 this year. When I was 9 I asked mum and dad if we could buy christmas presents for kids in hospital when they told me it would cost too much I decided to make them. I decided that I would make 1 present a day which is 365 a year and give them all away. I have done this for two Christmases now and I love it. I make special bears to auction and fundraise for people too. This is my page to share my story and show you the things that I make.
So far for 2016 I have made over 400
presents and raised $8,241 for fundraisers”

After Campbell’s recent appearance on a TV show in Tasmania, he has supposedly started receiving more donations for his project.

“Lots of people have donated fur and ribbons and lots of stuff,” he told ABC News.

You can see the bears Campbell has been making on Facebook; he usually gives each of the teddy bears a name.

Remess does take requests for bears, but from time to time he also sells them on eBay for charity.
