Hannibal is hosting a very unique Stuff A Critter fundraiser for kids...but it's not what it sounds like. No taxidermy skills needed for this event.

If you're familiar with "Build-A-Bear", that's basically the concept of Stuff A Critter. It's a fun way for kids to design and build their very own teddy bears (or critters) and all the money raised will benefit the Hannibal Regional Auxiliary. So your kids can have fun, be creative, and support a good cause. The Stuff A Critter event takes place on April 17 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Hannibal Regional Hospital Mall area.

There will be more than 70 critters to choose from and all critters are 16" tall. Critters cost $17 but shoes, outfits, and other accessories are available for a small surcharge. What kid wouldn't have a blast doing this? I can't tell you how many bears my kids have, and they do tend to get pricey (especially Build-A-Bear items which can cost three times what Hannibal Regional is offering).
