Build a bear for the Pope.

The first official souvenir for Pope Benedict XV1's visit to Washington DC in April, has been announced - a bear. He's been nicknamed "Benny Bear" by Susan Gibbs, spokesperson for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington."He's cute," Gibbs said, referring to the the bear.You can only get this "special" bear at one of the six Build-a-Bear workshop stores in Washington, so if you want one, you will need to act quickly. I suppose if the Teddy Bear was named after a President of the United States, it's perfectly natural to have Benny Bear to mark the visit of Pope Benedict on his first visit to Washington DC?

Commercialization begins. How about 10 percent of any profits made on Pope Benedict's visit be given to charity?
