Got a few too many stuffed animals in your house? Yeah, I thought so! Bring a gently-loved bear to the San Francisco Zoo on Saturday, October 13 for the Travelodge Great Sleepy Bear Swap. It's from 10-1, and benefits Stuffed Animals for Emergencies, and also the Starlight Children's Foundation.
The first 100 kids who donate a stuffed animal get free admission. But even without the free admission, some child will benefit from your generosity (teaching lesson!). And they'll have activities including face painting, drawing contests, bear tattoos, National Geographic activity books, Sleepy Bear masks and some education from zoo keepers.
Don't worry - that stuffed animal will be cleaned before being given to a kid in need. And Travelodge will donate up to 1,500 bears, matching these donations 3:1. Win-win!
