Happy Friday! Do you have a hero in your life? Specifically, do you have a huggable hero? Build-A-Bear Workshop has exciting campaigns happening right now to celebrate the heroes who’ve made an impact in your life! Teachers, military members, or anyone that has made a difference!
The Huggable Heroes program has recognized more than 100 exceptional young people since 2004. It supports a variety of causes and champions ‘un-bear-lievable’ efforts of young people who are making a difference!
They’re searching for 10 impactful children to be nominated! These young leaders should be between the ages of 8 to 18 and must offer extraordinary service in their communities or around the world. Each Huggable Hero will recive a $5,000 educational scholarship and $2,500 to be donated to the cause of their choice!
Here are some Huggable Heroes from the past years!
Be sure to Nominate a Huggable Hero here or pick up an entry form at your local Build-A-Bear Workshop store in the U.S, Puerto Rico, Canada and the U.K.
Celebrate your hero with a huggable gift!
Build-A-Bear Workshop is also heading up the USO Every Moment Counts program. As you may know, the USO recognizes the selflessness and dedication of our troops and their families offer daily in service to our country. To honor them, the USO has created Every Moment Counts in an effort to highlight the moments that matter most for our troops and their loved ones. Build-A-Bear has partnered with the USO to share the message of thanks and support for our heroes and appreciation to our nation’s troops and military families. How could we not love them for that?!
Throughout May and June, you can donate $1 or more when you checkout at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores & buildabear.com®. You can also Share a message of ‘thanks’ by using the #babwUSOthanks hashtag. For every message shared, Build-A-Bear will donate $1 to support the USO! They hope to raise up to $50,000 for the USO.
A great way to celebrate the patriotic season is to honor a hero in our lives and help recognize our troops who do so much to protect us each day!
