hi guys and gals! it is that time of year again ,i will be collecting any and all toys for kids in hospitals on christmas and hannukkah.

Any and all donations are welcome as long as they are new or with the tag still on please. On christmas day i will go to the six local hospitals and hand out the toys to the kids in the e.r. and in two specific hospitals the cancer center and the burn unit.

i did this last year and recieved incredible support from the family here and oddly from the people i used to drink with!

sup roo! I'm really pleased with your efforts. I would like to participate but I'm not very good at sending packages. I will send you a Target or Toys R Us giftcard and you can pick something out. The amount will be worth your while. There arent any walmarts near me. Let me know which is prefered for you Target or Toys R Us?

THANK YOU Ryan!! your darn right they're gonna get GREAT homes! more importantly they will brighten a kids day in a moment of pain, frustration, deppression, and.. all the just really shitty feelings that go with being in the e.r. or hosp on the holidays.
