Build-A-Bear Autism Speaks Bear

The Build-A-Bear Workshop has launched a special plush bear to support Autism Speaks and its Light It Up Blue campaign during Autism Awareness Month. The cute blue Autism Speaks Bear has a blue puzzle piece on its chest. The bear arrives on March 27. The bear costs $18 and $1 from the sale of this bear will be donated to Autism Speaks. An Autism Speaks bear-sized Tiny Tees shirt ($7) will also be available, with 50 cents from every tee sold going directly to the charity.

Maxine Clark, Build-A-Bear Workshop founder and chief executive bear, said, "As the prevalence of autism grows, we know how increasingly important this cause is to Build-A-Bear Workshop Guests. With this new Autism Speaks Bear, we hope to raise awareness and make a difference for children and families impacted by autism."
