As you can see, the USO Kandahar center in Afghanistan really got into the spirit of our campaign with Build-A-Bear. You can get in on the fun, too, by sharing a message of thanks using the #babwUSOthanks hashtag on your social media platform of choice. When you do, Build-A-Bear Workshop will donate $1 per post up to $50,000 to help the USO support troops and their families across the globe.
