How to Donate

There are many ways to donate! Simply click on the link below for more information.


Here is a list of hospitals that we plan on donating to for the 2014 Holiday Season.

If you have a child who would benefit from a bear that is at another facility, please contact us. We would love to help.

We could not make these donations possible without the help of these wonderful companies and individuals! Please feel free to send us a picture of your child enjoying their bear, or your creating one for them!

Building Hope

  • Texas Children's Hospital
  • Texas Children's Hospital Katy
  • MD Anderson
  • Children's Memorial Hermann
  • Dell Children's Hospital- Austin, TX
  • Shriner's Hospital-Galveston, TX

Donation Guidelines:

* All donations must be a Build-a-Bear (Dressed or Undressed is fine)

* Gender Neutral Outfits if Possible as we don't know the exact number of boys and girls on each floor

* Other Forms of Acceptable Donations- Gift Cards or Checks made payable to Bennett's Bears

As we begin to collect for the 2014 year, we would like to remind all donors to please follow these guidelines listed here. Thank you all for helping us set a record breaking year in 2013. We hope to top that this year and bring a bear to many more children across Houston and Austin!
