Toys to Iraq: Still accepting toys and stuffed animals!
Edmay Mayers is coming home after a long tour in Iraq with the US Army Corps of Engineers. But two of her comrades have agreed to take over her "duties" as volunteer distributors of toys to Iraqi children there. Michael is a geologist from Buffalo, NY and a 20 year veteran of the Corps. Natalie is an archaeologist from Montana, who also worked to help people in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I've heard from them both, and they are ready and excited to continue Edmay's work. So keep those gently-used toys coming, and keep spreading the word!
For the latest information about how to send toys to Iraq, please see the original post.
Another option Edmay suggested: Beanies for Baghdad. Donna Ward of Beanies for Baghdad has invited anyone to send donations to her organization as well, and to contact her with any questions ([email protected]). Donna left a comment with more details here.
