Testimonials

“My son is currently in Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, awaiting a Bone Marrow Transplant. My wife informed me today that some of the umpires for tonight’s Cardinals game came by Children’s and were passing out Build-A-Bear®. Please pass along our heartfelt “Thanks!” to those that organized this visit, and to the umpires for giving their time. It made Andrew’s day!”

“Thanks so much for the Colorado Rockies tickets and VIP treatment for me and my Little Sister Na’Tajah. I appreciate your support of Big Brothers Big Sisters, and it’s so cool that you are able to provide special opportunities like this. We had a really great time! It was Na’Tajah’s first Rockies game, and folks kept teasing her about not expecting this type of VIP treatment each time.”
