Making a Difference
This cuddly little guy retails for $23.00 and is available throughout the month of October Autism Awareness Month, with $1 from the sale of each bear going directly to help fund research into the causes and treatments for autism. You can also purchase a Purple Satin Heart for $1 to benefit the cause with and entire $1 donation going directly to Autism Speaks Canada.
Build-A-Bear-Workshop has been a strong supporter of families impacted by autism, raising more than $748,000 worldwide for the cause. And now you can be a part of this great initiative to keep the support going strong with this adorable little limited edition bear.
“At Build-A-Bear Workshop, children are at the heart of what we do and as the prevalence of autism grows, we know how increasingly important this cause is to Build-A-Bear Workshop Guests,” said Maxine Clark, Build-A-Bear Workshop founder. “With the Autism Speaks Bear, we join Autism Speaks Canada in their dedicated efforts to help fund research and we hope to raise awareness and make a difference for so many Canadian children and families impacted by autism.”
