The Brun Bear Foundation was established by Edwin in memory of his father.

It exists to promote the values that were important to his father - community participation, kindness and being true to yourself - and charities and causes his father held dear.

In its first year the Foundation published a successful children's book; completed a book tour in the UK and Singapore; got celebrity endorsements; organised dinners in the home of a top chef and in the year ahead will trek Mongolia and sponsor a bear!
