    Cheers to John Melaa for his donation. I will be at Casablanca tonight if anyone drinks there and wants to donate to our Children's Christmas toy fun.

    Thanks for posting Rechel.

    R and I just came back from a quick shopping trip.

    we ended up with 5 monster boxes and 924 items. We decided to buy 120 reusable cotton-bags instead of that Christmas paper-bags which are throw-away items. Here some of the stuff we got on that shopping trip:

    toothbrushes, baby-powder, coloring books, crayons, story books, feeding-bottles,plates spoons, soap-bubble-thingies, styling-gel, educational books, combs, ID Lanyards with ID-Holder, dolls, toy-cars, face-towels, and and and...

    The Sales Supervisor of Unitops was 2 hours supporting us and delegated her staff to collect and count all items and gave us additional discount for the purchase and a special price for the cotton bags. thanks a lot !!!

    As of now we have about 7 Items for each bag, including hygienic- and educational stuff, toys and for the "6-12 year" group some styling or fashion thingies.

    Awesome, thanks so much for your offer. Each dollar makes the smile of the kids a little bit brighter. I send you the PayPal details, or you can get in touch with PatO for Western Union transfer. What ever you prefer.

    At the moment R ruins her nails scratching off all prices from the 924 items. And my monsters sorting the bags and filling them :smile:

    The generosity of members and friends alike has been overwhelming. As a rough figure, we are now running at approximately 30,000 peso and the figure is still rising. I will be able to give an accurate figure once the donations are in the book and receipts issued. We can now put more in to each bag, and can actually buy more bags than we originally planned. It is nice to have a little in reserve, as there will be some unfortunate children who will be admitted to hospital on Christmas Day so we will probably be able to provide for them also.
