… but first, a happy 9th anniversary to our very own Jodi Skulley! And Happy Groundhog’s Day to everyone else. I can never remember which way I want the shadow to go … but some warm weather would be nice. As last year summer started in April and went til November, I feel greedy asking for no more winter.
Anyway, on with our regularly scheduled programming. -Jessie, Resident PL Blogger
Build-a-Bear wants to recognize kids who are making a difference in this world through their Huggable Heroes program. Kids 8 to 18 can be nominated or nominate themselves on the Huggable Heroes website.
The nomination form asks questions about the hero’s volunteer activity, impact and accomplishments for their cause, and how much money they have raised.
Eight heroes from the United States and Puerto Rico and two from Canada will receive an amazing prize package to honor their accomplishments. Each winner gets:
- A $7500 scholarship
- $2500 for their charity
- a video camera
- and a three-day trip to meet the other Huggable Heroes!
Nominations are being accepted through the end of the month online and at Build-a-Bear Workshop stores.
Do you know any kid heroes you could nominate?
