When you give from your heart, you can truly change the world.

Every day, children across the country are exposed to stressful home environments, community violence, natural disasters and other traumatic experiences. Their physical, mental and emotional well-being is at risk.

The Build-A-Bear Foundation is proud to partner with Save the Children to make sure these children are safe, protected and have the tools they need to thrive.

About Journey of Hope

These immediate and long-term support programs empower children of all ages to identify their own strengths and to build coping skills, self-esteem, and overall resiliency to reach their full potential.

When exposed to a traumatic event, children face a wide array of risk factors, each with the potential to disrupt healthy social, emotional, academic and physical development. Journey of Hope Programs helps them recover while also building their confidence and abilities to deal with difficult situations in the future.
