I just got a note from Asha at Parenthacks asking for donations of used stuffed animals. Asha was contacted by Edmay Mayers, an engineer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers working in Iraq who distributes toys to the children she meets over there. Mayers says that they can't keep up with the demand for toys for these kids.
Read the entire post, which includes mailing directions for the stuffed toys, here at Parenthacks.
This is a fabulous opportunity to clean out stuffed animals your kids no longer play with (or never did play with) and, at the same time, help kids who have almost nothing. And this could make a great service project for elementary school kids.
