Remember over the holidays when Minnie Mama and Mini Minnie Mama participated in the amazing Huggable Heroes Workshop w/ Build-A-Bear? I know you all have tons going on and if you’re like me then sometimes you’re a little fuzzy minded so here’s a clue — it was the event where we built teddy bears for Toys for Tots. 🙂
Anyways, it’s now time for you to vote / enter your favorite Huggable Heroes for 2011! Below please find the official details and I really do encourage all of you to nominate the special service minded kids in your lives. And if you feel like your kids aren’t nomination material then maybe it’s time to help them get involved in charitable activities. Trust me it’s never too early to teach your little ones the importance of giving to others and it will make them & you feel really good inside!
Each year for the past eight years, Build-A-Bear Workshop, through its Huggable Heroes program, has searched for and recognized young leaders who make positive contributions in their communities or around the world. This year, ten Huggable Heroes, between the ages of eight and 18, from the United States and Canada, will be selected and honored for their good deeds. Each of the ten Huggable Heroes will receive a prize worth $10,000 ($7,500 in the form of an educational scholarship and $2,500 from the Build-A-Bear Workshop Foundation to be donated to the 501(c)(3) charity of each Huggable Hero’s choice). In addition, the Huggable Heroes will win a trip for themselves and a guardian to St. Louis, the home of Build-A-Bear Workshop World Bearquarters. During their visit, the Huggable Heroes will meet each other, be honored for their good deeds and participate in seminars and a community service project. In addition, they will be featured in the 2012 Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Heroes Calendar.
