Toys for Iraqi children

If anyone is planning to give toys to a charity, here is one worth considering. Fayrouz and I donated toys for Iraqi children to a local project.

For those who don't live in the DFW area, Operation Give is a national toy drive and distribution handled by a National Guard soldier who's known as "Chief Wiggles." The toy project is 100 percent volunteer driven (no overhead costs). They have also worked out some deals with businesses to get toys at discounted prices for the Iraqi children. Donors can also collect toys locally and send them to the U.S. distribution center, which forwards the toys to Iraq at no charge.

Enough for now,
