Join us in donating a toy
to give to Cardon's Children's Hospital in honor of Gavin's 6th
birthday (Oct. 6th!) Every year our family uses the money we would have
spent for Gavin's birthday to buy toys to donate to the children's
hospital where he spent so much time. There are 3 ways to join us!
1) You can bring a new toy by our home anytime in the next two weeks,
up until Sunday, October 20th. There is a blue rubbermaid container
behind the bench on our front porch to put your toy in, in case we're
not home when you stop by!
2) OR you can have a toy shipped to our address: ............... (Amazon free shipping!)
3) OR you can make a monetary donation to our paypal account and we'll
add it to our budget for buying toys. We've also had e-mails sent with
gift card vouchers to Toys 'R' Us, etc, so that's an easy option, too.
(We'll be taking the kids shopping on Saturday the 19th, so make sure to
get it in before then!)
Any kind of toys are welcome...big or small!!! The little toys by the
check-out register are perfect for playing with in a hospital bed, so
don't think a small toy isn't good enough, they are GREAT! Also, baby
toys are always needed...any little rattle, teething, or musical toy.
Art supplies can be used in the communal craft room. Books are great,
too, board or chapter. There are also computers for the kids to play on,
so any computer games, especially the younger aged ones, are super fun!
A $1-5 toy can make a HUGE difference for one little kid who has to get
yet ANOTHER blood draw. They don't care how big and fancy it is, just
the idea of going to the toy closet to pick a prize is enough! It makes
such a HUGE difference to them and to their families. I can't tell you
how much it helped to have a new toy brought in for Gavin, especially
when we were quarantined to his room and he could only play in his crib
for days on end. It wasn't just fun for Gavin, it was a sanity saver for
his mom and dad!!!
Lot of stores have their annual toy
clearance sales right now including Walmart, Frys, and Target. Don't
forget to grab one when you are running errands this week! :)
