There is nothing better than a holiday bear delivery, especially when Black Friday sales allow us to buy a few extra! But the success of this weekend lies in more than great sales.
The gathering of family, friends, and Build-A-Bear Workshop employees for an important cause is what made this bear delivery priceless.
We encourage our supporters of all ages to remember the most valuable gifts this holiday season: the gifts of giving, being thankful, and caring for others.
After our shopping trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop, we attached "get well soon" cards to the stuffed bears and delivered them to the burn center at Stony Brook University Hospital. We were thankful to learn that no child burn victims were hospitalized this weekend! As an advocate for burn safety, Boo Boo Bears reminds everyone to be mindful of fire hazards in this season of deep-frying turkeys, lighting fireplaces, and watering Christmas trees.
It is so exciting to see that, after seven years of hard work, Boo Boo Bears is inspiring young people to give comfort to others. We encourage our supporters of all ages to remember the most valuable gifts this holiday season: the gifts of giving, being thankful, and caring for others. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and we invite you to join us in our mission to make the world smile, one bear at a time.
