This is Bearista. He is a Starbucks bear. I bought him off of their clearance table about 5 years ago and decided to start a cool project with him. How it works is he travels around the world and visits host families who show him the town and take pictures of him in various situations (let's just say that he has been drunk several times) and then make an entry in his journal (which I made out of Starbucks bags) and then send him on to the next family. If you are a host family you may keep him for up to 2 weeks. Bearista has been traveling for 5 years now. He has been to several states, Alaska (see above), Italy, Ireland, England and France....to name a few. Right now he has no one waiting on him. So, if anyone would like to have Bearista visit their home, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address. He has his own suitcase, journal and even a passport!
