Champ’s Around the World Adventure…begins in Canada!

We’re featuring Champ (not to be confused with Champerina), the famous Build-A-Bear Workshop bear who was created specifically to highlight children’s health and wellness for the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation. Champ was born from the inspiration of a family’s love for a daughter and the daughter’s idea to fund research. Read about Nikki, who lost her battle with cancer but whose legacy lives on in Champ. A dollar from every Champ bear sold goes directly to help fund grants to children’s related approved grant applicants.

Why is that important to know?

Memories of Beary Old Friends

by Angela Roy from MommyPR.com

Dictionary.com classifies a friend as “a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard.”

In that case, I think I could call my husband my friend, my kids, my dog, and even many of my facebook friends.

But, I want to go way back to the early 90′s for this one. I was in the 5th grade I believe. Wild child and knew everything right?  I was a more quiet kid, I liked school, and I had friends in every clique. But I had one friend that I don’t think I will ever forget. She was someone I never separated with. If she was in a class, we found a way to end up in there together. Finally, teachers just got the hint and we were seated together everywhere. After school I would help her to her bus, and then we would spend the weekends getting into as much trouble as we could in her golf cart. She was something else. We talked boys, music (she was really into Jimmy Buffet, and I just discovered Amy Grant & Micheal Jackson) , and gossip.

I remember my mom thinking she was bad influence on me because she found out we watched scary movies. The scary movie- Stand By Me. Best movie ever, but I guess at that age and time, everything seemed scary.
