Oklahomans are sending a special gift to children in Iraq. Since September 11th, tens of thousands of teddy bears have been placed at the National Memorial in Oklahoma City.

So Memorial officials decided, rather than let them collect dust in storage, they'll go to children in Iraq. Monday morning, about a thousand bears were cleaned and repaired. Then they were boxed up.

A humanitarian group will hand them out to children in Iraq.
