As a part of their ongoing 15th birthday celebration, Build-A-Bear Workshop will be inviting guests into their stores to participate in the creation of 25,000 stuffed animals that will be donated to the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots program, providing gifts to children who might not otherwise receive any this holiday season.
"During the special weekend of October 20 – 21, Build-A-Bear Workshop invites the first 100 Guests in all of its U.S. stores to make a stuffed animal for free to donate to the Marine Toys for Tots® Foundation to distribute to kids in need in communities across the country. Stuffed with Hugs® is a core program of Build-A-Bear Workshop."
Pop Star Cody Simpson will kick-off the special weekend by building bears with Marine families on Friday, October 19th at the Build-A-Bear Workshop on Fifth Avenue in New York City.
