The gift of giving November 11, 2010

I have a favor to ask of you…….

Last year around this time, a dear friend was at Children’s Hospital (Preston/Hedgecox) with her newborn daughter.  It was a very stressful time to have a 10 day old baby with a staph infection.  Plus with a child under the age of 18, a parent must stay with the child.  Have you spent the night in a hospital, not as a patient?

Can you imagine what it is like to be in a hospital with a sick child over the holidays?  Many of the children don’t have a Christmas.  Some families are under extreme financial stress with medical bills.

My friend and her husband came up with the idea to collect gifts for the children at the hospital.  60% of the children are ages 3 and under.  The rest are ages 4-teens.  We are asking for toy donations this year.  Can you help?  Our goal for this year is 100 gifts.

You could donate a barbie doll, hot wheel cars, coloring books and crayons, stickers, notebooks, stuffed animals, books, toy trains, blocks, toddler toys (little people, trucks, small dolls), lotion (or gift set/overnight bag with shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste) ect.

We need the unwrapped gifts by December 15th to take to the hospital.

Leave a comment and I’ll let you know how to get the items to me for donation and I’ll post pictures when we deliver.
