Heartfelt Little Bear Hugs with Yes!-Stars
In keeping with tradition, Yes!-Stars magazine served as informational partner to the international charitable campaign "Full of Little Bear Hugs: Heartfelt Little Bear Hugs," conducted every year by the Build-A-Bear Workshop company. On that day, workshop guests make furry friends with their own hands. The finished toys are not sold - they are given to children in need of attention and care.
It has already become a warm-hearted tradition for Russian stars to participate in the charitable campaign, and this year they again took part with great pleasure. Actresses Anastasia Tsvetayeva, Yekaterina Vulichenko and Marina Orel made adorable little bears together with their children. Plazma group soloist Maxim Pastelny created a bear for boys and dressed it in army fatigues. Members of the group Chelsea made pirate and karate bears. Alena Vodonayeva dressed her bear in a wedding gown, and Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, captain of the Lokomotiv soccer team, brought along his girlfriend, Maria, to participate in the event.
The stuffed animals made by celebrities and other workshop participants were given to the charitable foundation "Vsye Vmyeste" ("All Together") and the Ronald McDonald Center. Every visitor to the event received a complimentary copy of Yes!-Stars.
