Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is the result of an external force striking the head causing a physical disruption in normal brain functioning. TBIs frequently occur as a result of a car accident, sports head-injury, or any event that causes a sudden blow to the head. Incidentally, due to the nature of the artillery used in the War in Iraq, TBI is considered the 'signature wound' of this war. Unfortunately much remains unknown in the realm of diagnosis, immediate care, and long term treatment of these devastating injuries.

AuPairCare, a leading au pair placement agency located online at www.aupaircare.com, is teaming up with Build-A-Bear Workshop stores nationwide to hold their Share-A-Bear campaign which invites au pairs to give back to their local communities by making a bear and donating it to a local children's charity.


AuPairCare's monthly au pair activities have involved charitable giving in the past, however, this is the first time AuPairCare has launched a nationwide charitable campaign. Heidi Woehl, VP of AuPairCare, says "AuPairCare is present in many of the same areas as Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and their mission of creating a place "where best friends are made" is very much in-line with the role an au pair can play in the life of a child and host family. We are very excited about this partnership and the opportunity for our au pairs who make a difference in the lives of the children they care for, to extend the spirit of international friendship through these bears to other children in their area."
