This bear needed a special name. More than sharing the power of a wish to make a difference in the lives of kids with life-threatening medical conditions - this bear gives them hope, strength, and joy.
It was fun to see everyone's names for this cute little guy. Go Buy Local took off their creative hats and threw "Grant" in the ring. They thought this was a great name for a bear who grants kids wishes! Equally, the response from Make-A-Wish and fellow Minnesotans was, "Love it!, Great name!, The name is adorable!"
Fingers crossed, Go Buy Local hoped their name would be chosen - and it was - meet Make-A-Wish's "Grant" The Wishing Bear! Grant made a stop off today at Go Buy Local to say "Hi!" to their team as he travels across Minnesota with kids on wish trips.
You can help Grant make wishes come true - donate to Make-A-Wish today and transform the lives of kids with life-threatening medical conditions, forever.
