Coloring book donation to St. Jude

Just wanted to let you know what a great Friday Martha and I had.  We delivered 1000 Pushkin coloring books to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis from Lil’ Critter Kids.  We hope that every child under age 10 will receive a copy.  They were well received by our contact, Jessica.  Then Jessica took us on tours of the Memphis Grizzlies House and Target House.  Both are facilities with suites for the families to stay in during long visits.  The hospital itself has only 70 beds and they are for ICU and Bone Marrow Transplant patients.  The idea is that the kids are better off staying with their families than in the hospital.  They can stay in the Grizzlies House, Target House, and Ronald McDonald house free.  They are great facilities and it is amazing to find out how many people care for the kids through the gifts they have given.  If you are interested let me know and I can give an idea of what they are like and who is giving.  I feel our donation from Lil’ Critter is so small in comparison with all that is done but it is a great feeling to be part of helping these kids.
