Helping Iowa Flood Victims

Please help the Iowa Flood Victims!

Amy at The Flege Farm lives in Iowa where the flooding has been just devastating. Thankfully her family is ok, but they know a lot of people who were affected and have lost so much with homes and businesses being flooded.

Jessica of Raising Joey came up with an idea to help get some books and toys to the kids who have lost so much and asked if I wanted to join her, of course I said yes. Jessica is having an Usborne Books Eshow with all books going to Amy to get in the hands of those who need them.

I'm doing something similar with Discovery Toys. I can't set up an "online show" but there is a Spring Into Summer Sale as well as Summer Sunsations Sale. If you would like to donate to this cause you can donate through paypal (even $1.00 will help) and on June 25th I'll take all donations and place an order sending it to Amy to distribute. If you'd like to place an order yourself you'll need to email me for Amy's address of where to send the order to.

Any commission I make as a result of placing this order to Amy I will also send to Amy so she can purchase toiletries and other much-needed items.

If you have an online store and would like to add your business to this wonderful cause, please let Jessica or myself know so we can add you to this. Also, please spread the word about our book and toy drive.

Thank you!

How gret you are doing this - I just placed my order.

On a sidenote, I am just catching up on blogs and read your entry on the speech - how amazing that graduate is at 18 already. Thanks for posting it - I sent it along to some people who needed to read it. :)

I was almost hoping you were going to be asking for toys. After W.W.'s birthday I plan to purge his toy closet and would be happy to send some of the good ones along. Ah well.
