Build-A-Bear Workshop Helps Kids Read!

You’ve heard of Build-A-Bear Workshop – right? Those are the stores you can go into and build your very own huggable, loveable, squeezable teddy bear. You pick your bear, then you fill it with “stuffing” at the incredible Build-A-Bear Workshop machine and then you get to pick clothing and matching accessories for your creation. Fun!

Now, the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation is doing more than just making adorable teddy bears. This month the foundation presented the Literary British Columbia Society with a grant for $1,000 to help promote and support literacy and learning in British Columbia, Canada.

Money for the grant was made possible with the help of Read Teddy® ─ a special furry friend available in all Build-A-Bear Workshop stores. With the sale of each Read Teddy, $1 is donated to worthy causes and programs that support reading and literacy for kids.

Build-A-Bear Workshop has always had a strong commitment to leave a “pawsitive” mark on the world. Since its 1997, the Build-A-Bear Workshop company has donated over $20 million to support causes related to children, animals and the environment, sharing the hug of a teddy bear wherever needed in local communities and abroad and recognizing kids doing great things.

    What Would You Do For a Good Cause?

    • I would write a school report on it.
    • I would sell chocolate bars door-to-door.
    • I would get my parents to donate or think of ideas.
    • I wouldn't do anything - I'm just a kid!

    Using steam is simple dear ^^ you just download it, make your account, then go to the store via the downloaded 'app', and buy the game.

    Ask for it. I've done things before like that, where I've considered it an "early christmas/birthday/etc" gift.

    I really do want the game. Should I ask my parents for it or just save it for my Christmas Wishlist....?
