A friend of mine volunteers in the emergency room at a local hospital. She noticed that children came in so upset they couldn't even take their temperature. Once she handed a small toy to a screaming child and the child calmed right down so they could get her vitals. She is now spending $20 and $30 a week to take small Ty Baby toys to the hospital each weekend so she will have enough for any children who come in.

If you would like to do a random act of kindness feel free to send new or gently used Ty Babies to:

Rita Zimny
Legislative Council
1700 W. Washington
Suite 241
Phoenix, AZ 85007

I will be donating weekly.


That is a great idea! Thanks for the address! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Hey! Thanks soo much for the comment Sandi! Hope all is well there! :) I will definitely look for some Ty babies. I know when Raymond burned his hand....I was so thankful for the E.R. nurses - he was totally totally freaking uncontrollably. Have a great day! :)

I'm so glad you posted this. I have a bunch I can send her!

Love the random things list! Kind of funny about the pie, too! Oops! And your shadow SPT is great! I've benn off the radar lately and have missed so many wonderful blogs postings! What a great friend you are to post about the Ty babies! We have never owned any...do the toys need to be TY only? I understand if so and will keep my eye out.

They don't have to be Ty Babies. That is just what she bought. Any small stuffed animal would work.

A long time ago I wrote a blog about how I was going to come up with a sticker saying something to the effect that they had been blogged about. Well I was looking 0on this website and saw this clander and thought of you. Here is the link. http://www.cafepress.com/buy/blogger.
