General Sarge Honoring Month of the Military Child

General Sarge Honoring Military Kids!

What a week it’s been! General Sarge made the announcement about teaming up with Build-A-Bear for Month of the Military Child and giving away a military Build-A-Bear to honor a military child on Wednesday. Little did we know just how big of a response we would receive. We are most thankful to all the people who re-tweeted the contest on Twitter and others who wrote blog posts and still others who let their military friends on Facebook know about the contest.

At General Sarge HQ we are here to support military families. Many times we forget about the sacrifices the children in a military family make and that’s why it’s so great to have this opportunity to not only spread the word about this important month, but also honor a military child with a military Build-A-Bear. We are busily printing off each and every entry that comes in via email and on May 2nd we will announce the military child who will receive direct from the Build-A-Bear Workshop a military bear.

Keep Spreading The Word!

In the meantime, keep spreading the word about Honoring a Military Child during the month of April. If you know a military family with a parent deployed overseas, make sure you honor their children by telling them how proud you are of their sacrifice allowing their father or mother to be away defending our freedom. The children will appreciate your kind words. You can also take a few moments and enter the name of a military child for our drawing here at General Sarge HQ.

It’s really quite easy to do and anyone can nominate a military child they know.

The easiest way is to click the “Contact” button on the left hand side of the screen and send us the name, address, phone number, email, as well as name and branch of the military the parent is serving in. If the parent is deployed, please include that information too. If you want more information about this contest read and click the links found in the information box in the top right hand side of this page labeled “April – Month of the Military Child Build-A-Bear Giveaway”.

Last, but certainly not least, thanks again to Jerry and all the fine people working hard at ContactMe to get their site back up and running again. After numerous emails yesterday I can saw ContactMe is looking out for their customers and thanks again to Jerry for helping us through this glitch. Now all the “Contact” buttons are working and you can enter a military child to win a Build-A-Bear.

Staying Army Strong!

  1. I was reading the Knit Wit by Shair’s blog and she did a post about your offer for children of military. Could you briefly say what a Build a Bear is about and is this offer for Canadian children who parent(s) are in the Armed Forces? I will check your website tomorrow.
    Is your son just beginning his military career. Our training school is outside of Montreal and it is BIG!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Yes, there are Build-A-Bear stores all over the world. It’s really an amazing experience. Kids and adults both love going into the store, picking out a bear, building the bear and everything! Here’s the link t the Build-A-Bear website – Build-A-Bear Main Website – Once you’re on the site move your mouse over the “Store Location” tab and you will see an option there for International Stores. You will then find Canada. Click that and you will find locations in Canada.

      As for your question, is this open to military children outside the U.S. – Yes it is – We will need the same information, name of child, email, address, etc. Just enter the contest using the Contact tab. As a side note, we’re actually originally from Ontario, Canada. 🙂

      Last but certainly not least, our 18 year old is just beginning his military career. He graduates from Fort Benning, GA, Infantry division of the U.S. Army next Friday. He will then have a couple weeks of leave and then reports to Fort Lewis, WA for duty mid-May. Two of our three boys are in the Army. You can find out more here – Two Sons In The Army You can also find out more about General Sarge here – About General Sarge,

      Thanks for stopping by General Sarge and all the best!
