Share Your Heart with Build-A-Bear Workshop & Save the Children
When you give from your heart, you can truly change the world.
Every day, children across the country are exposed to stressful home environments, community violence, natural disasters and other traumatic experiences. Their physical, mental and emotional well-being is at risk.
Build-A-Bear and Build-A-Bear Foundation is proud to partner with Save the Children to make sure these children are safe, protected and have the tools they need to thrive.
How can you help?
Now through February 28th, Build-A-Bear Workshop Guests can share their heart by donating to Save the Children's Journey of Hope program in stores or online at buildabear.com. Build-A-Bear Foundation will match each Guest donation made in U.S. stores up to $100,000.
All donations collected will support Save the Children's Journey of Hope program.
In stores, Build-A-Bear Workshop Guests can also fill out a special Share Your Heart card to send positive thoughts and encouragement to children in the Journey of Hope program.
Help spread the word! Hope is contagious and when you share your support for others, you will inspire other kind hearted folks to do the same.
About Journey of Hope
Save the Children believes that all children, regardless of geography or family income, deserve support to tackle the challenges they face. The Journey of Hope program empowers children of all ages to identify their own strengths and to build coping skills, self-esteem, and overall resiliency to reach their full potential.
Children who complete the program are better able to express feelings of anger, grief and stress, and have newfound skills to cope with their emotions. They develop strategies to manage bullying and come away with new friendships that leave them feeling safer and more supported.
