More Thank Yous…
Norlin from Just Us Kids also sent some toys from her online store. Norlin replied to my initial call on the AMB website a mere 15minutes after I first posted about the appeal.
It wasn’t long before I heard from Melissa from Kleenex Mums who then sent me 450 kleenex plush puppies! WOW!
The generosity of individuals has also been so inspiring! Many of you contacted me wanting to send toys but either couldn’t get them too me or the boxes were already full. Thank you so much! To Alice, Kristin, Sarah, Linda, Lori, Heather & Leisl – thank you for your contributions and for going out of your way to get them to me in time.
Leisl spent about 6 hours yesterday picking up toys and then driving over to Borders to get their box of goodies for us, helping me sort and pack boxes of Huggies pups and generally lending a hand. When my SIL arrived to look after the kids so I could get to the airport she asked how we knew each other and was amazed to learn that we had just met. The beauty of online community in action!!!
