Build-A-Bear Workshop® announced today that the company will donate a furry friend or toy for each stuffed animal sold in their U.S. stores beginning Saturday, December 22 through Christmas Eve. This is in response to the shortage of toys recently announced by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots national program.

“After learning that Toys for Tots was not reaching their toy goal, we wanted to help by giving a new furry friend to children who may not otherwise receive a gift for Christmas,” said Maxine Clark, Build-A-Bear Workshop founder and chief executive bear. “Our Guests always want to help others in need so we are happy to provide this additional opportunity to assist Toys for Tots in their efforts to spread happiness and hope to children during the holiday season.”

The added donation is an extension of the company’s holiday support of the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. Build-A-Bear Workshop® is also supporting Toys for Tots in other ways:

During the month of December, all donations from the sale of purple satin hearts will be directed by the Build-A-Bear Workshop Foundation to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. The $1 purple satin hearts are available nationwide at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online at

To spread teddy bear hugs over the nation, Build-A-Bear Workshop has already donated over 24,000 furry friends to local Toys for Tots programs across the country.
