Build-A-Bear Huggable Heroes Looking For a Few Awesome Kids |@buildabear #HuggableHeroes

My kids absolutely LOVE stuffed animals.  They have so many, even though they always tell me they want more – I’m sure this is the same with every kid. But we have yet to visit Build-A-Bear, can you believe it?


Right now I think it is the perfect time to visith Build-A-Bear.  The Build-A-Bear Workshop recently launched its 11th annual search for Huggable Heroes, to recognize and reward charitable-minded youths making the world a better place. 

Do you know an amazing kid? From now until June 12, nominate a young social entrepreneur between the ages of eight through 18 by visiting 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.

Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Heroes Nomination Instructions:

  • From May 1 to June 12, nominate a young hero by visiting\huggableheroes or Build-A-Bear Workshop stores across the country.
  • Kids ages eight through 18 can be nominated via an entry form online at\huggableheroes or at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada.
  • Entries require short answer responses to the community service questions about someone or yourself who has made/makes a difference to the quality of life in their community and/or around the world.
  • 50 finalists will be announced on July 9 and 10 selected young volunteers will be named Huggable Heroes on July 30, with each receiving $7,500 in scholarships and prizes.

Since the beginning of the Huggable Heroes in 2004, more than 100 exceptional young people have been recognized as Build-A-Bear Workshop® Huggable Heroes®.  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.  What an amazing program!

Sharing is caring!
