Wrapping up my Valentine posts here and wanted to wish each and every one of you a happy Valentine’s Day!
I have a confession to make. Despite leaving childhood behind many, many moons ago, I have a soft spot for teddy bears (pun intended).
I even keep a collection of my favourite fuzzy friends on my bedside table … pauses for collective groan … sappy, I know.
So supporting the charity efforts of a company that’s a virtual shrine to teddy bears was no big stretch for me. But support them I did.
I made an online donation to Save the Children at the Build-A-Bear website. And I even got a great thank you gift in the process (see below).
This was such an enjoyable good deed for me that I felt I needed to do something a little extra (and fun, in the spirit of the day). So I filled out a Valentine’s card with a “Have a lovely day. Happy Valentine’s!” and slipped it into the collection basket at mass.
If this is considered blasphemous at some level, I could be in trouble. I hope the church peeps have a sense of humour … or love to get anonymous Valentines….
Anywayyyyyy, when you donate $1 to Save the Children at www.buildabear.com or at any Build-A-Bear Workshop store, until March 5, you’ll get a free download of a lovely song called “Let’s Talk About Love” recorded by David Archuleta to help this worthy cause.
It’s insanely catchy, listen and enjoy! ❤
