United Adventure Bear program

Since 2012, the United Adventure Bear program has brought smiles to children in need across the globe. The program was created to increase our impact in the communities that we serve and to provide opportunities for co-workers to get involved by supporting local hospitals and charities.

Throughout the fall and winter, United employees deliver our Adventure Bear, named Ben Flyin, to children in need around the world. In 2018 alone, we delivered more than 10,000 bears in 31 countries. United Adventure Bears have traveled near and far, both within the U.S. and to countries including Australia, China, Colombia, Germany, Ireland, Peru, Portugal and Vietnam.

Our Ben Flyin bears are environmentally friendly and made with 100% organic cotton on the outside and recycled plastic bottles on the inside. They’re also fair trade certified from start to finish, made with organic plant-based dyes and are free of toxic chemicals to help us meet our commitment to support a more sustainable future.
