Toy/Blanket Drive

My local Ronald McDonald house is going to rebuild a larger,better house on the campus where our local children's hospital is. They have helped us out more then once before we decided to move up here and didn't ask for a dime. I thought it would be nice to have a handmade blanket/toy drive for them. They are going to open up in 2014 ( I don't know the date yet) but I had the idea of taking alot of  hand made blankets and toys to them so they can pass them out to the families. They don't have any restrictions to anything ( just make sure it is comfortable and washable). If you would like to help please let me know. If you don't have time to crochet a blanket but you can whip up some squares and you would like to send them, I will be glad to put them together. If you sew and want to whip up some stuff animals and send them, I will put them up until they open them up. Please, lets flood them with warmth and love since they help out so many families on a daily base and not ask for anything in return.

I can't commit to anything yet but I may be able to make a few stuffed animals.

Not sure now.
Maybe a few people who crochet could do a few squares a piece w one size hook and a preset color scheme. And pass them to you to put together. Just a thought.

The drop off isn't going to be until next year some time but I thought if somebody wanted to go ahead and start on something or send something we can get a head start on it :)

When in 2014 will they open? & where? I'm making kid capes, baby blocks and little blankets during Christmas time I can whip a few extras up.

I think this is a great idea!  I have several friends that have used the RM House.  I would love to help you out.  I could make a few colorful pillowcases so while the kids are in the hospital they have something bright and cheery to sleep on.  They could take it home with them when they leave.
