A couple of days after I heard about Chief Wiggles’ Iraqi Toy Drive I took my family out to the local Dollar Store and we picked up a bunch of toys (including hackey sacks, jump ropes, and yo-yos) and some other things I thought made sense (including notebooks, pencils, pencil sharpeners, and toothbrushes). Then I didn’t ship them right away like I should have. When I finally got around to doing it, the shipping address was closed due to the volume of incoming goods and other factors.

There is a new shipping system in place now, and I finally got our package off this afternoon. I encourage everyone to send a little bit.
