Day 150

we are at it again..
Getting bags ready for the childrens hospital..

We are in need of these items.
Thank you to anyone able to donate!!

List of items we are trying to collect:
(must be new items, hospital policy to lessen chance of infection or germs)

  • Small LEGO sets
  • Board Books (sets from costco can have 5-6 in them!! so would be able to give to 5-6 kids!!)
  • Decks of cards or card games
  • Crayons (we will be putting together crayon roll ups as well)
  • Colored Pencils
  • Notebooks or Journals
  • Color books (dollar store!!)
  • Mini games (like board games in travel size)

These bags go to the children diagnosed with Type 1 who are staying at the hospital and need something to take their minds off of their illness if only for a while.  Thank you all. Last year we were able to donate 90 bags !! Lets beat that number in 2013!!!


  1. Wow, what a wonderful idea with some pretty awesome legos included in those bags! Do you head this up all yourself?

  2. Yes, when Madi was in the hospital we met a little 6 year old boy dx and he was there by himself a lot. His parents didnt stay at the hospital and we realized there are probably a lot of kids in that situation. We wanted to put something together that would help kids be bale to have fun and just be kids.. We collect donations then deliver them every few months. We have been blessed to get a lot of cash donations so my kids get to go shopping for the hospital kiddos (hence the LEGOS!!) By the way, do you have a facebook acct? or email?
