Build-A-Bear is committed to making our communities a better place to live, work and play through contributions of time and talent. For them, giving starts at home. Build-A-Bear is passionate about making the world a better place for children and setting an example for the next generation of givers.
This year through our "Duffel Bag Project" and with the support of Build-A-Bear we will make 100 kids have a little smoother transition into the foster care system in Miami-Dade county.
Our goal is to to help foster kids have more positive experiences. Volunteers will decorate, stuff, and create HOPE Bags, each bags will be stuffed with a Build-A-Bear™, a blanket, a hygiene kit, a coloring book, and crayons.
Every day 1,200 kids enter foster care in the united states. Together we can change the way they experience the system. When foster children move from home to home, they usually have to carry their belongings in two trash bags. With HOPE Bags, now children can have a sense of ownership during transition.
