Here is what the trees looked like right before all the teddy bears where removed from them.
The kids all get in lines going down the adjoining corridors from the central part of the school. Each bear is removed and passed down one of the long lines to the end of the hall with each person giving it a hug goodbye. then they are packed up into bags and taken to the shelter.
Here the bear is so big that the Kindergärtners are having a fun but hard time passing it down the line.
