OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GIVE OUT MORE THAN 3000 BUILD-A-BEARS TO PEDIATRIC CANCER PATIENTS AND OTHER ILL CHILDREN TO LOCAL AREA HOSPITALS DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS HELPED US IN THIS JOURNEY. WITHOUT YOUR DONATIONS WE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SPREAD THOSE SMILES. LOOKING FOWARD TO WHAT 2015 HAS IN STORE FOR US.
