Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you find some helpful hints for organizing your time and space. My passions are to help you make home a refuge instead of a crisis center, and to help you function in peace rather than chaos - at home or at work. I have switched my main blog to 1-2-3 ...

Recycle Stuffed Animals for a Cause

What kid doesn't have an abundance of stuffed animals? I know ours always did.  

If your child has too many, she might be willing to give up some to children in war-torn areas and war zones. Beanies for Baghdad will send Beanie Babies, stuffed animals, and other items to service units in Iraq and Afghanistan who will distribute them to local children.

Loving Hugs sends stuffed animals to children in war zones, refugee camps, orphanages, medical facilities and elsewhere. 

In both cases, postage is on you.

Check with your local animal shelter as many will accept stuffed animals to comfort puppies.
