Children in Need and Build-A-Bear Workshop

Children in Need 2012 takes place tomorrow. Across the UK hundreds of thousands of people will be dedicating their time and effort to raise money to help children who need it the most. Yesterday my son went to nursery with spots all over his uniform and the nursery raised £1 per child.

So, how can you help? What can you do? Here is a very simple idea and it also enables you to give a gift to your own children whilst helping others. Build-A-Bear Workshop has partnered with Children in Need for the fifth year running. They are offering you the chance to make your own Pudsey or Blush Bear. Either at shops across the country or online
Pudsey and Blush
You can make your own bear, choose a heart and then, if you want to, choose from a range of outfits. More importantly, £5 from every sale of Pudsey and Blush bears will go to Children in Need. An additional £1 will be donated per outfit purchased. 

 Last year saw 11,840 bears sold and £102,000 raised for BBC Children in Need. This year they are hoping to top this figure with help from Pudsey and Blush. Every sale of Pudsey and Blush will donate £5 to the BBC Children in Need charity which will help to fund grants and projects across the UK aiming to provide disadvantaged children with more opportunities and a better way of life. Every purchase really can change a child’s life for the better.

You can support the cause by purchasing a Pudsey or Blush Bear from any Build-A-Bear Workshop shop or from the company’s website. As an added bonus, my readers will get 10% off their order when they enter the code 498260 at the checkout.
