About us/in the News

Tom and I along with our three youngest children moved to Ethiopia in 20019 where we stayed for the majority of the time until 2016. We have also spent 5 months in Kazakhstan and Nepal each teaching English. Since the full-scale invasion of Ukraine In March of 2022 Sally has spearheaded raising support and aid for Ukraine. In 2022 over$670,000 has been raised in aid and support. For more information see below or visit the Baer’s section of our website.

We are currently stateside in Western New York where we create and run our 6 Baers Toy & Gift Shoppe (since 2009) currently located @ 50 Chautauqua Ave Lakewood New York and continue to hustle military aid for Ukraine.
