Leading fashion and accessories designers have given some cute teddy bears stylish makeovers to help The FEED Foundation.

Rachel Roy, Vena Cava, Cynthia Rowley, Milly, Nicole Miller, Susan Rockefeller, and Douglas Hannant, and The FEED Foundation’s founder Lauren Bush are amongst the big fashion names who’ve given The FEED Foundation’s Plumpy bear a makeover. Each one is made from 100% organic cotton and natural burlap, and then embellished with its own fun outfit. I particularly like Lauren Bush’s design pictured, with its replica FEED tote, dapper blue and red blazer, and cute baby teddy companion.

The designer Plumpy teddy bears are being auctioned off on the Charitybuzz website. Opening bids are set at $100, but each bear is valued at $600. That’s an awful lot of money to spend on a toy, but as proceeds will benefit the FEED Foundation perhaps we should simply think of it as a charity donation! You’ve got until December 20 to place your bids.

If you can’t afford a designer Plumpy you can still buy one of the regular teddies from The FEED Foundation’s website for $60. That price secures your teddy and enough energy-dense PlumpyNut peanut paste to feed five children in need.
