The Build-a-Bear Workshop Honors #Autism Awareness Month with the Autism Speaks Bear

To honor Autism Awareness Month this April, the Build-a-Bear Workshop has partnered with Autism Speaks to make the Autism Speaks bear.

The Autism Speaks bear ($18) will be in Build-a-Bear Workshop stores as of March 27, 2013 (available while supplies last) and $1 from the sale of this bear will be donated to Autism Speaks.

Throughout April, guests can donate $1 (or more) to Autism Speaks upon check out at Build-a-Bear Workshop  stores within the United States on line at     

Cute, cuddly and for a good cause, the Autism Speaks bear will make any child - with or without - autism very happy. 

I'm excited to host a $25 Build-a-Bear Workshop gift card giveaway.
