Operation: Teddy Bear Drop, February 9, Build-A-Bear Workshop @ Concord Mills
9 members joined me at Build-A-Bear Workshop on Monday to make ten bears for Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital. We made 5 girl bears and 5 boy bears. It was fun seeing the guys spin in circles and kiss thier bear's hearts. We took a picture to give to Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital along with the bears. It was a touching experience that I was glad to be a part of and I hope these bears will make 10 children happy.
