The Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Heroes program encourages and empowers young people to be leaders and honors them for their dedication and accomplishments. Past Huggable Heroes have raised funds and awareness for orphans, provided eyeglasses for those in need, volunteered at local hospitals, provided phone cards for American soldiers serving overseas, and raised money to protect endangered animals.
Do you know someone age 8 to 18 who is serving in an incredible way? Go to the Huggable Heroes Web site and nominate them. Ten grand-prize winners will be awarded $10,000 for their service.
