Yes, ofcourse. Just let us know as soon as you realise!

Please note that we will be unable to make any changes or amendments to orders that have been approved for production by customers themselves.
Our goal is to support a wide range of good causes in the UK, from established well known charities right through to local independent causes.
You can select a different Charity to donate to for every teddy that you order. Currently we are unable to split donations for individual orders.
But you can donate to two separate Charities if you were to order two teddies for example.
This may vary from charity to charity. We will contact you via email to let you know when the donation has been made on your behalf.
We’re also making this a viewable option from within your online account with us.

We operate like any other Ecommerce website (online shop). We enable our customers to order beautifully personalised teddy bears and soft toys for a wide range of occasions.
For every order we receive, we donate 10% to a good cause that the customer chooses.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive – a 10% donation means a 10% donation!
For example, if you order a personalised medium sized teddy (£19.99), then the charity of your choice will receive £2. It’s really that simple.
We pay donations raised through shopping to your charity every month providing the ordered item has been delivered and received by the customer.
For example, orders placed and received in January will have their donations made at the end of February. Orders placed in February will receive their donations at the end of March, etc.
There are no minimum amounts required, if you raise a donation of £3, then that’s what we’ll send.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from ‘pending’ to ‘approved’ to ‘paid’ over the course of a couple weeks after the order has been received.
