Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Heroes
Build-A-Bear Workshop has launched its 11th annual search for Huggable Heroes, to recognize and reward charitable-minded youths making the world a better place. To date, more than 12,000 young people have participated in the Huggable Heroes program and Build-A-Bear Workshop has awarded over $1 million to these most charitable-minded youths in the country. Collectively, the Huggable Heroes have recruited thousands of volunteers, gathered more than 300 million items, and raised more than $10 million for their causes. From now until June 12, you can nominate a young social entrepreneur between the ages of eight through 18 by visiting buildabear.com/huggableheroes or Build-A-Bear Workshop stores nationwide. Ten winners will each receive a $5,000 scholarship and a $2,500 donation to a designated charity of their choice.
