Huggable Heroes
Boy with Hero Cape
They started nonprofits, raised thousands of dollars, and helped combat homelessness - and they're all children.

For more information, visit the Build a Bear website.

As Paul Faucher - dad of one of the Huggable Heroes - says: our kids are our future ... and if they are in fact our future, I say our future looks very bright!

Our Own Young Heroes: Share YOUR Story!

Following from the Gimundo article on Huggable Heroes, we'd love to publish in the next issue of Starlink some brief stories of the young heroes our readers know. Boy Smiling with Hero Cape

The Build a Bear heroes were all involved in raising money for charity. But there are many other ways in which young people every day are making a difference in their own lives or for their family, school or community.

All of us know at least one young person who's doing something terrific. :-)

Please consider emailing us the story. Just a paragraph or two is all that's needed, highlighting one of the amazing young heroes you know. (Names and identifying details may be changed to protect privacy.)

The first three stories to reach us will receive a prize. All stories will be published in the next issue of Starlink.
