Build-A-Bear Workshop to benefit JDRF

Now through November 28!

We are excited to announce a renewed partnership with Build-A-Bear Workshop®, the leading and only global company that offers an interactive make-your-own stuffed animal retail-entertainment experience. Founded in 1997, the company currently operates more than 400 Build-A-Bear Workshop stores worldwide. In 2007, the interactive experience was enhanced – all the way to CyBEARTM space – with the launch of buildabearville.comTM, the company’s virtual world.

Build-A-Bear Workshop’s annual JDRF Pin Pad Campaign will run Tuesday, October 30 – Wednesday, November 28 throughout 280 stores across North America. NEW this year: customers can show their support for JDRF by donating $1 or more at checkout in stores or online at Details of this campaign are provided in the links below and available on the Intranet by clicking on the National Corporate Partners Campaign Resources icon.

Since 2003 Build-A-Bear Workshop has raised more than $730,000 for JDRF. We look forward to a successful FY13 campaign that coincides with National Diabetes Awareness Month and the celebration of Build-A-Bear Workshop’s 15th birthday and over 100 million furry friends made. Thank you in advance for doing your part to steward Build-A-Bear Workshop locally to help ensure a continued partnership with JDRF.
