Stuffed with Hugs™ is a charitable program of Build-A-Bear Workshop now in its twelfth year of helping kids in need around the world by providing teddy bears to children's causes. Stuffed with Hugs was created to give children the chance to help others.
Since Stuffed with Hugs began in 2001, more than 450,000 teddy bears have been made and donated to children in need of a hug. Stuffed with Hugs partners have included adoption agencies, children's hospitals, firefighters and police officers, the USO, UNICEF, Ronald McDonald House and other worthy organizations.
This year Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles is the local recipients of the Stuffed with Hugs program and will receive 200 bears to use in our hospital outreach. This is event is also a celebration of the stores grand opening. The new store concept fuses the traditional bear-making experience with the latest in interactive technology. Get a sneak peak.
