MDG might be a bit too old for her own Build-A-Bear, but that doesn’t mean she can’t support its awesome partnerships with charities like Autism Speaks. Their lengthy relationship, which began in 2005, has already helped raise more than $545,000 for children and families impacted by autism. And, after perusing photos of its new Autism Speaks Bear, I’m confident they’ll raise thousands more.
During its Light it Up Blue campaign this April, $1 from the sale of each blue beary special teddy ($18) and 50 cents from every AS bear-sized tee shirt ($7) will be donated to Autism Speaks. Guests can also donate any dollar amount to the charity when they check out at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores in the United States or online at buildabear.com. Help build a better future for kids with autism.
