On April 1, Brooks Brothers announced that it was partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, such that 100 percent of any donation made at the company will go toward helping to grant the wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition. This is the 16th straight year the inimitable clothing company is partnering with the non-profit to brighten the lives of children.

To assist this fundraiser, Brooks Brothers is selling “Brooksie Bear” and “Brooke Bear,” a boy and a girl Teddy bear. Purchasing either of these preppy, nautical-themed stuffed animals results in $5 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and you can be a part of making more than one kid smile.

This opportunity only lasts until the end of April, and it coincides nicely with the Brooks Brothers annual 25% Off Spring Sale. At checkout, after you have loaded your cart with items from either the Men’s or Women’s sections (or both!), you will be given the option to contribute to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. These are your options:

$10: “Gives a child an album to collect celebrity autographs on wish day”

$25: “Gives a child a memory card for their camera to capture special moments on wish day”

$50: “Gives a child a ride in a limousine on the way to the airport on wish day”

$100: “Gives a child a new outfit for his or her very own photo shoot on wish day”

Brooks Brothers is offering great savings through the Spring Sale, as well as in the Black Fleece line, in which everything is currently 60% off online. Shoppers have the opportunity to make a real difference by putting those savings toward making a small child’s wish come true.
