I have a friend who came up with a wonderful idea. She collected toys (mainly old McDonald’s toys) from all of her friends (lucky me included) to send to US troops in Iraq. She stays in touch with one of her brother’s classmates from West Point. When she offered to send him a care package…he requested these toys instead. He and other troops passed out the toys to many imporverished Iraqi children.
My friend, Elizabeth, has done such a beautiful thing and touched the lives of so many children she will never know…just by indulging her generous spirit. Her brother’s classmate recently sent her photos of the toys being passed out….she turned the photos into a video and posted it on her blog.
It is beautiful. Check it out!
