Every trip to Build-A-Bear is magical. For my daughter, it starts with a simple trip to the mall and ends with a new best friend. On our most recent visit (thanks to a Groupon certificate) Rudolph’s pal Clarice came home to live with us and the reindeer hasn’t left her side in nearly two weeks. Since Clarice has a talking feature, I am very glad to report that she has an off switch that we have dubbed night/nap-time mode. Thank you Build-A-Bear.
But as cute as Clarice and her friends from Rudolph are, the Build-A-Bear friends I want to introduce you to are Turner Owl, Jack Russell Terrier, WWF® Gray Wolf and Champ. These cuddly friends are part of Build-A-Bear’s Gifts that Give Back program and a portion of the proceeded of each of these animals purchased is donated to a worthy cause.
The purchase of Turner Owl donates $0.50 to First Book to provide new books to children from low-income families and $0.50 to the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation to support other literacy and education programs. Likewise, $1 from the purchase of Jack Russell Terrier (from the Bearemy’s Kennel Pals® series) benefits domestic pet programs, WWF® Gray Wolf funds endangered animals and their habitats and Champ supports children’s health and wellness causes such as juvenile diabetes, autism and children’s cancer research.
My daughter will find a new Champ bear under the Christmas tree in just a few weeks, wouldn’t your kiddos like to find one under the twinkling lights too?
