Too many happy meal neo-pets lying around?

Looking for a new home for those three precious moments praying dolls you received at your baby shower? As you trip over seven teddy bears and nine disney princesses on your way to your daughter’s bedroom, do you often ask yourself why she has that many? Do you have beanie babies oozing out of your ears? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have the perfect solution for you.

The following is an email from Edmay Mayers, a member of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers who is currently stationed in Iraq.

Please, please, please – I know where you can give all the stuffed animals and toys away – I am presently stationed (deployed) in Iraq. The children here love the stuffed toys – I can hardly keep up with the cost of them – I am continuously ordering more and more from Oriental Trading Company and candy for the young ones too. If there is any way at all please have any and all sent to me at the address listed below and I will ensure that the children in Iraq receive all that is sent.


Please spread the word.

Fabulous idea!! I might just have a few hundred sitting in bins in the basement because tripping over them got tiring. Thanks for sharing that.
