MISSION

Build-A-Bear Foundation adds a little more ❤️ to life by sharing hugs and making days a little bit brighter for those in need. 

VISION

We believe in the power of hugs and the simple comfort of having a furry friend by your side.

We know we can’t solve all the world’s problems but, in a small way, the simple joy of a teddy bear hug can make a difference. A hug is a simple, yet powerful, way to show that you care and it’s understood in every language. On good days and bad, having a teddy bear to hug can make everything a little bit better.

By providing teddy bear hugs to children who need them most, we can spread the power of hugs. If we can make one child smile or feel better, we can change the world… one hug at a time.
