Bear Bills™ game cards

Bear Bills game cards are a pawsome way to add more virtual fun to your online adventure at buildabearville.com™. Each card includes 10,000 Bear Bills virtual currency and a virtual ride for your online character.

Plus, each card sold at U.S. Build-A-Bear Workshop® stores comes with a FREE $10 DonorsChoose.org GivingCard™. Build-A-Bear Workshop is partnering with DonorsChoose.org to provide students in need with resources to learn and thrive. Guests that go to DonorsChoose.org can use the code on the back of their card to direct $10 to the school project of their choice ? $1 of which is donated by Build-A-Bear Workshop, and the remainder is provided by other corporate donors.

DonorsChoose.org ? Teachers Ask. You Choose. Students Learn.

DonorsChoose.org is an organization committed to bettering the lives of children across the nation by supporting public schools. This nonprofit addresses the scarcity and inequitable distribution of learning materials and experiences in schools by connecting individual classroom needs with donors from across the country. Any individual can search projects by areas of interest, learn about classroom needs, and choose to either partially or fully fund a compelling project.

No matter their contribution size, all donors are treated to a level of service normally reserved for established philanthropists. This includes meaningful choice, full accountability, and portfolio services. Whether making a contribution of $10 or $1,000, an individual can choose to support the specific project that he or she finds most compelling and know that their dollars were spent as directed.

Nationwide, DonorsChoose.org has enabled over $24.8 million in contributions to public school classrooms, and more than 1.4 million students have felt the impact of more than 86,000 generous individuals.
