There are still some toys, etc., trickling in, but here is just an idea how the Sadie Smile Toy Drive has turned out (absolutely unbelievable!) — $2,600+ in cash donations, plus new and gently-used toys donated, amounting to:
28 bins of toys, books, and arts/crafts
3 bins of movies for all ages
$390 in iTunes gift cards for teens to download apps, books, music, etc.
20+ other random things that are too big to fit into bins
a new 32″ flat screen TV
PS3 gaming system and several PS3 games
6 bins of toys, books, and arts/crafts
Other random “necessity” type of items, like car seats (once belonging to a very sweet little blonde-haired blue-eyed girl), a playpin, etc.
4 bins of stuffed animals
3-4 bins of toys collected there
$170 donated for me to spend when I go up to Henderson on kids up there
“Thank you” is an understatement. I will forever be changed by not only the events of the past 7+ months, but also by the love and generosity coming from you all. Thank you for loving big. I pray God pours out His love in amazing ways to you all!
I’ll post pics as we are delivering all of these Sadie Smiles over the next week or two!!!
