This years campaign theme and slogan is “Show your Spots… Lets Raise Lots”. To mark this Build a bear have designed some lovely outfits for both Blush and Pudsey. There are different outfits for the bears and a £1 donation from each outfit sold will be made to Children in Need too.
We were recently sent an adorable Pudsey Bear wearing a set of spotty pjs (like the ones as shown above). The boys call him their special teddy as he is a “poorly bear”. I explained to them that Pudsey was a special bear as he liked to help lots of children who weren’t as fortunate as them. Callum was really interested in this and asked me lots of questions. We will make a donation as we always do but this year I can explain why we make the donation with the help of our Pudsey. This year Pudsey has been redesigned and has a spotty heart (see picture below)
Children in Need’s mission is to make a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. This years event will take place on 18th November. Last year they raised an amazing £39 million. This money has helped many organisations who work with children aged under 18 with mental, physical, behavioural and psychological disorders. They also help children who are living in poverty or who have been abused and neglected.
Pudsey is a firm favourite with James, as you can see from the pictures below.
