Toys for Troops


My blogging friend Gnight Girl has a son in Iraq. About a month ago, she did a post saying that her son requested toys be sent in the packages she was sending to him because the Iraqi kids love them. They especially like soccer balls and Beanie Babies.

Since that original post, the Toys for Troops project has taken on a life of its own. Click here to read more and send some toys to the troops.

Anything that might help rid this country of Beanie Babies and soccer balls is okay by me, I tell you what.

I have 2 large plastic comforter bags of Beanie Babies that I spent countless wealth cataloging, researching and preserving. If if would not cost me a months salary, I would send them babies in a New York Minute! PS...slide me some sake and enjoy the ride.
