Send a Hug to Someone You Love

From annual birthday celebrations to lifetime milestone moments like graduations, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many events to be delayed or celebrated in entirely new ways. The Build-A-Bear Giftshop offers the perfect way to celebrate these important moments by sending a furry friend to commemorate a special day and tell someone that they are cared for.

A great idea for any occasion, the gift of a teddy bear hug is a special way to stay connected to the people you love. Build-A-Bear furry friends are customizable for each unique gift recipient and become a special delivery perfect for everyone. Gifts can be made even more memorable by including a Record-A-Sound with a personal voice-recorded message or with customized embroidery on select items!

Build-A-Bear Foundation Gives Teddy Bear Hugs to Those Who Need Them Most

As families continue to adjust to life at home, parents may be struggling to explain the situation to their children. Studies consistently show that teddy bears can be helpful to children in handling emotions and limiting stress.

A teddy bear is always there and can provide stability and understanding for a child who is struggling to understand the COVID-19 pandemic and helping that child to navigate uncertainty and anxiety. Even for adults, there is evidence that the hug of a favorite teddy bear brings comfort.

In support of its mission to add a little more heart to life by sharing hugs and making days a little bit brighter for those in need, the Foundation has committed to donating at least 50,000 teddy bears in 2020.

In addition to donations of furry friends, the Foundation has donated more than $250,000 to COVID-19 relief efforts. Guests can further support these initiatives and the COVID-19 response by donating to Build-A-Bear Foundation online or purchasing a Hearts 'n' Hugs Teddy.

For every Hearts 'n' Hugs Teddy purchased, Build-A-Bear Workshop will donate a teddy bear to Build-A-Bear Foundation for a child impacted by COVID-19.
