A little about each bear. Each bear has been named based on suggestions. I've tried to stick with famous travels so in the future you can look forward to Alice (from Alice in Wonderland), Gulliver, and Homer. Each bear has an informational tag on its neck and a backpack sewed on that holds a travel journal and some stamps in case people don't want to/can't use the e-mail system I've set up.
Here is what the tag says, this may help clear up any confusion about the project:
"Hello, my name is Hermes and I am part of Project GeoBear. I am the first bear to be released into the world by Molly of Portland, Oregon with the goal of traveling the world and learning about peoples’ lives. I would appreciate it very much if you would not keep me but host me on your trip and pass me on to another traveler once you reach your destination.
When you take me to a new place please send an e-mail to:
or a postcard/letter to:
(There are stamps in his backpack)
Please include minimally the name of this bear, a date of arrival, a location, who you passed me onto and when. You could also include a short paragraph talking about things like who you are, what you did on your trip, or anything else you would like to share.
The more the better!
Also please fill out a page in the journal in his bag so that his hosts can
see his adventures as he goes.
I would especially appreciate photos of the bear at its location and you if you’d like. This project is meant to learn about people and to see the world. Everything is done anonymously of course unless you would like me to use your real names.
If you would like to track Hermes’ progress please visit our home page at:
where the progress of all the GeoBears in this project will be shown along with pictures. You are welcome to post here, give suggestions and be involved!
Thank you again for participating in this project and if you have found this bear by mistake please return it by contacting Molly at the provided information, she will pay."
It's really not too hard and I think it's rather fun. Again, please let me know if you can start a bear for me or if you have any suggestions. You can e-mail me at that address or post to my Facebook/Myspace.
