This Valentine’s Day, Build-A-Bear Workshop has launched a nationwide initiative A Million Hearts, A Million Wishes Campaign with the Starlight Children’s Foundation – an amazing charity which grants the wishes of seriously and terminally ill children all over the UK.
When you visit your local Build-A-Bear store, you select a small satin heart to put inside their bear. Until Valentine’s Day, you will be invited to share photos and videos of their “heart ceremony” on Twitter Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. For each post featuring the hashtag #shareukbabwwishes, Build-A-Bear Workshop will donate £1 to Starlight. Build-A-Bear Workshop guests are also invited to make a monetary donation at the tills in stores nationwide.
“Build-A-Bear Workshop is helping to grant once-in-a-lifetime wishes for seriously and terminally ill children, restoring the magic and fun of childhood and giving the whole family happy memories to share,” said Neil Swan, CEO of Starlight, “happy children respond better to treatment and Starlight helps children to forget about their illness and simply have a bit of fun“.
