A chance to help people who are hurting this Easter...

Hey guys, I don't normally do stuff like this, but this is something that's really been laid on my heart, so bear with me...

I'm relatively new at my current job (a little over 6 months) and just got an e-mail yesterday that, every year around this time, we collect stuffed bunnies, chicks, lambs, and other animals to give to sick kids and people on pediatric and geriatric hospital wards.  Per hospital policy, the plush toys have to be new, with the tags still attached, to be accepted for donation (to lessen risk of germs and infection).  Last year the people at my work's campus donated 1,316 stuffed animals.

And that is an awesome amount.  But I know that there are a lot more people than that who are suffering in these hospital wards.  Wouldn't it be nice to brighten their day with something as simple as a little stuffed animal?

This is where you come in.  I would like any and all interested readers to please contact me regarding stuffed animal donation.  It's really easy to contribute.  For my part, I just went to my local Tuesday Morning and cleaned them out of their "Easter" (bunny/chick/lamb) animals.  They sell decent sized stuffed animals for only around $5.

And, to further encourage you, everyone who donates will receive a free gift from the 8PP Store.  I really want to help make this year's Bunny Drive amazing for sick kids and the elderly.  Please contact me if you're interested.
