I just read about this post on Parent Hacks. If you want to donate some toys to Iraqi children, here’s what you can do — as I quoted from the post:
Edmay Mayers is coming home after a long tour in Iraq with the US Army Corps of Engineers. But two of her comrades have agreed to take over her "duties" as volunteer distributors of toys to Iraqi children there. Michael is a geologist from Buffalo, NY and a 20 year veteran of the Corps. Natalie is an archaeologist from Montana, who also worked to help people in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I’ve heard from them both, and they are ready and excited to continue Edmay’s work. So keep those gently-used toys coming, and keep spreading the word!
Edmay left their contact information in the comments of our original post, but here it is, right up front. You may now send toys to:
Michael Fellenz or Natalie Sudman
Another option Edmay suggested: Beanies for Baghdad. Donna Ward of Beanies for Baghdad has invited anyone to send donations to her organization as well, and to contact her with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org). Donna left a comment with more details here.
