Description: During Stuffed with Hugs weekend, more than 25,000 furry friends will be made and given to less fortunate children through the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
Build-A-Bear Workshop invites the first 100 guests at each of its U.S. stores to help make stuffed animals for free to give to children in need of an extra teddy bear hug this holiday season. As a thank you, guests who participate in Stuffed with Hugs will receive a coupon for $3 off their own furry friend.
The stuffed animal making process will take place during regular store hours each day and continue until all 100 furry friends are made in each store.
Stuffed with Hugs provides the opportunity to give a gift to children who otherwise may not receive presents this holiday season.
The event is part of a variety of weekend activities celebrating the 15th birthday of Build-A-Bear Workshop.
