If you have some free time on Saturday, May 15th and would like to build a teddy bear for a great cause this is for you!

Be one of the first 200 guests at Build A Bear and help stuff bears for children whose parents are serving in the Armed Forces. No cost to you! You will receive a coupon for $3 off $15 for helping!

Thanks for passing along this info...

DD loves to stuff bears...DD has not one spare inch for more bears at our house. We got there right when the opened, there were about 5 or 6 people in front of us, so it didn't take long at all.

DD picked out an outfit, and really "geared" her bear up! (the outfit was at our expense.) She wrote a little note on the tag, and said the bear's name was Maddy.

Apparently, Build-a-Bear does this every year for a different charitible cause.

My daughter was thrilled to have this opportunity...so thanks for the link!
