Visit Build-A-Bear in November to Fund-A-Cure

November 1, 2011

Build-A-Bear Workshops, the interactive retailer of customized stuffed animals, has once again partnered with JDRF to raise funds for diabetes research in honor of National Diabetes Awareness Month. Throughout November, Build-A-Bear Workshop guests can directly support JDRF by adding $1 to their total purchase via the pin pad when paying by debit/credit card at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores in the United States and online at the Build-A-Bear website.

Build-A-Bear offers an interactive make-your-own stuffed animal retail-entertainment experience. Making a stuffed animal gift is a unique and fun experience. You can choose from a wide variety of animals and characters to make, ranging in price from $5 for their lil’ friends to $25 for larger friends; then, give it a unique personality with hundreds of teddy bear sized outfits and accessories.

“We are proud to support causes like JDRF that are important to our Guests,” said Maxine Clark, Build-A-Bear Workshop founder and chief executive bear. “Diabetes is a growing concern among families and we join with JDRF in their dedicated efforts to finding a cure.”

These efforts are focused towards JDRF’s goal of improving the lives of every person affected by type 1 Diabetes (T1D), an autoimmune disease which affects as many as 3 million people in the United States alone. As the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, JDRF is working to accelerate progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. Since 2003, the Build-A-Bear Workshop Foundation has donated more than $575,000 to JDRF.

“We are grateful for the support of Build-A-Bear Workshop Foundation in their generosity to JDRF,” said Yvonne Miller, national director of corporate development for JDRF. “Through each dollar donated, JDRF will be able to continue to fund research for type 1 diabetes.”
