  • just an idea too...if you call local stores some may do a toy drive within their company. (like just their employees do it) alot of retail stores do volunteer things. so you may be able to get participation from one. try kids stores first they tend to be more likely to do things like this. just tell them you are collecting toys to donate to your local children's hospital and you were wondering if they could contribute anything.

  • Double check the rules at the hospital. I would think used stuffed animals are a no no because of germs...actual used toys in general might be a no no. I'm not trying to rain on your parade though. I commend you for just DOING something!

  • When you know the rules, advertise this on craigslist, your facebook if you have one, and even make postcard size flyers and drop them off at houses in your neighborhood. If you have older children you can help them really get into it by going door to door. Good luck mama!
