I was our local Build-A-Bear Workshop this week with my daughter looking for the perfect birthday gift for her bestie….a Build-A-Bear Palace Pet! While we were there we saw signs for Build-A-Bear’s Huggable Heroes program. Build-A-Bear honors young people who are working to make the world a better place through granting them educational scholarships and a donation to the charity of the winner’s choice. Build-A-Bear will pick 10 young Huggable Heroes this year to be honored and receive prizes. I know that we have many Huggable Heroes in New Hampshire so let’s nominate them! I would love to see some of our New England youth honored as Huggable Heroes! These young leaders must be between 8 – 18 years old and “provide extraordinary service in their communities or around the world.” You can nominate a Huggable Hero now or pick up an entry form at Build-a-Bear Workshop stores!
