Build-A-Bear became a corporate partner of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 2011 by introducing their new “Cause for Celebration” party program. At a "Cause for Celebration Party," guests celebrate their special occasions by enjoying all the bear-making fun and make a $10 celebration donation to St. Jude. Build-A-Bear Workshop will match the donation up to the first 1,000 parties booked.
In August and September, Build-A-Bear also offers its guests the opportunity to make a donation of $1 or more to St. Jude. Aligned with National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the campaign provides a great opportunity for Build-A-Bear and guests to support the St. Jude.
Through July 2013, Build-A-Bear has raised more than $700,000 for the hospital. St. Jude is grateful for Build-A-Bear’s ongoing dedication and support for the medical research and breakthroughs helping children all over the world.
