    My son told me about the Beanies For Baghdad Program. They take donations of other items in addition to Beanie Babies.
    http://www.beaniesforbaghdad.com/

    We had about 40 Beanie Babies that were just sitting on a shelf. I contacted this program and they gave me an address to send the Beanies to. I figure they will do more good in Iraq than sitting in my house.

    Follow-up...

    Yesterday I received a very nice thank you letter from the soldier I sent the Beanies to. I didn't expect the letter so it was a nice surprise. She is a mental health specialist in Baghdad. Soon she will be sending me photos of the kids receiving the Beanies. :smile:

    That is great! I told some family members about the program and they will be sending items too.

    My parents and some other friends contributed several boxes to this program a couple of years ago. I'm so glad to see it is going strong. Especially since we still have some of this (more than some) around :) Do they still have the restriction on "religious" beanies do you know?
