We pray that you all are enjoying many blessings as we quickly move into this - a brand new year!!
For those of you who do not yet know of Baby Emma and her plight, please feel free to view our profile and follow the links below.
Some of you may be aware of the many charity projects that we continue to organize to benefit children around the country!
Our current project - Emma's Toy Box - kicked off mid December! We are collecting stuffed toys and Crayola items / activity packs which are being, and will continue to be provided to children suffering with cleft palate / craniofacial conditions locally & around the country all throughout the year!
The stuffed toys need not be new - but because many will be going to hospitalized children and those suffering from a compromised immune system - they must be very clean and in good condition with no rips, tears or stains. We are currently requesting ONLY STUFFED animals and toys. (no metals/plastics, etc. please).
These will all be professionally cleaned before distribution so don't worry if you see a tiny spot or something, we'll take care of that.
We do ask that the Crayola items be in new / unused condition. Any Crayola products are welcome - - we are sticking with the Crayola brand only. We are looking for crayons, markers, colored pencils, the neat new activity packs - "Color Wonder", "Color Explosion"... any of those type of activity kits.
Here is a link to the Crayola Store Online for anyone interested. They offer free shipping on orders over 75.00 and you can get a new customer code for 15% off your first order when you register as a member at http://www.crayola.com
If you are able to help out with even a single stuffed toy or coloring book, please do! We welcome any and all efforts to aid these amazing kids!
