Posted on by 0 comment

I was sent this press release from Joint Support Services. Here’s a fun way to support the troops by supporting the USO!

Build-A-Bear Workshop(R), the interactive entertainment retailer of customized stuffed animals, have announced that it is celebrating Military Appreciation Month by supporting the USO and offering troops and their families a military discount. The Build-A-Bear Workshop Foundation will invite Guests to donate $1 at checkout registers May 3 through June 7 in any Build-A-Bear Workshop retail location in the United States to support the USO, which provides morale, welfare and recreational activities to service members and their families.

Also during this timeframe, all members of the armed services and their direct dependents will receive a 20% discount on any purchase at Build-A-Bear Workshop store locations in the United States with the presentation of a valid government issued military identification card.

For Guests looking for a special way to salute their favorite military hero, Build-A-Bear Workshop offers a variety of military inspired options. The Camo Bear ($18) complete with a Build-A-Sound(R)($8) for Guests to use to record a 10-second personal message, is great for servicemen and women and their families.
