Gift-A-Bear Donations – August 7, 2011
Earlier this weekend we made a stop at our favorite Build-A-Bear Workshop store at the Eastview Mall in Victor, New York. We were in picking up a special new outfit for General Sarge which he will need this coming Saturday for a special appearance he’ll be making.
As we stood chatting with a few people Sarah told us she had a surprise for us. Little did we know just how wonderful the surprise would be!
When Sarah finished helping the other customers at the store who had just bought a new furry friend she turned to us and said – “Someone made three special military bears for the Gift-A-Bear Campaign today!”
We were speechless!
Two Paws Up To The Stiefler’s
Later in the day Lynne Stiefler stopped by the General Sarge website and left the following comment:
“We’re regular customers at the Eastview Mall Build-A-Bear and Renee shared the story about what you are trying to do with the bears so we made three CHAMP bears and dressed them for your use. We did one as a Marine in honor of our nephew Matt who is currently stationed in Japan and two dress in Army outfits in honor of our other nephew Christopher who was recently discharged from the Army and had been stationed at Fort Bragg. This is a great project and hope you are successful with this. Take care and prayers for you and the family.”
Lynne and Randy, thanks so much for your support and donation of the three bears to the Gift-A-Bear Campaign. Matt and Christopher, thank you for your service to our country.
Staying Army Strong!
