Update from Edmay in Iraq: 423 boxes of toys so far

Just got this comment from Edmay, and wanted to post it up front so everyone can appreciate it. Look what we've all done!

Hi to all,
Wanted to give you an update on the toys, clothes, school supplies, candy, etc. As of today 3/6/07
we have received 423 boxes filled with love from the wonderful, caring, generous people in America (1 from Japan). I cannot thank you all enough. We had to order a conex for the boxes of toys and we now have our teams distributing the items and also the Army (82nd & 1/34th) doing the same - and we will probably have the Air Force taking some too. I am going to also check with the Romanian troops that serve with us - they probably would like some to distribute also. May God bless and keep each and everyone of you. All items sent will be used and given to the Iraqi people. /Edmay

I'm hoping to spread the word even farther with some sort of press release next week, so if you know of anyone (journalists, bloggers, anyone) who might want to report on this story, please let me know and I'll put them on my list.

For the latest information about how to send toys to Iraq, please see the original post.
