Boys & Girls Clubs of America is excited to announce our continued partnership with Build-A-Bear Workshop and Build-A-Bear Foundation during the 2017 Back2School season. Build-A-Bear and Build-A-Bear Foundation are committed to adding a little more heart to life, and have partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to make a positive impact in the communities where their employees live, work, and play.
Starting June 29, guests of Build-A-Bear Workshop stores can support Boys & Girls Clubs across the country by adding a donation to their purchase at check-out both in-stores and online until Sept. 5. Funds from this campaign will be split 50/50 (50% to BGCA, 50% to local Clubs matched with a Build-A-Bear Workshop store). In addition to the in-store fundraising campaign, Build-A-Bear will donate 20,000 furry friends to local Boys & Girls Clubs across the country, in celebration of Build-A-Bear’s 20th anniversary and National Teddy Bear Day.
The mission of Build-A-Bear Foundation is to inspire kids to be Helpful, Empowered, Accepting, Respectful and Team players. To learn about Build-A-Bear Workshop, visit http://www.buildabear.com/
