There'sĀ almost always someone on the Christmas list who loves teddy bears.

RONA stores in Mississauga and across the province are selling JJ Bear for $10, with all proceeds benefiting at-risk children and youth.

For the third year, RONA has partnered with the Children's Aid Foundation to sell the cuddly bear. Money raised helps support education programs for children, with funds directed back to the communities where they were donated.

JJ Bear is being sold until Dec. 31 (or until they sell out) at stores and online at

RONA stores are also accepting donations on behalf of the non-profit group, which helps young people achieve their potential and access the job market.

"The JJ Bear campaign is more than raising funds for the Children's Aid Foundation and the children and youth we help," said Luc Rodier, RONA vice-president of operations, big-box stores, Ontario. "The bear represents comfort, support and security, which all children and youth should have in their lives."
