Have a heart.

Hello one and all!

For Valentine's Day I decided that I would like to bake up a batch of heart shaped cookies and take them to the Ronald McDonald House so that the families could take them as gifts to their nurses and doctors.

While talking with Meg, who coordinates the volunteers at the House, we thought it would be a fun idea to go a bit further and put together gift bags so that the Moms and Dads could give them out not only to their nurses and doctors, but to their children as well. How fun is that?

Here's where you come in. Below is a list of items we'd love to have to get this show on the road. If you're interested send me an email, or a note in Facebook, and we can go from there. I'd like to have everything by February 11th, cause that's how I roll.

And some of the children are being treated at the Kartini Clinic, an eating disorder clinic. Since candy is out of the question for their gift bags the director of the program suggested small items like playing cards and stickers. Note: the House doesn't allow finger nail polish, or strong smelling lotions, in gift bags de to health issues of some of the kids staying there.

In the years I've been volunteering at the House I've seen how much families appreciate fun activities like this. And many of the famlies don't have the time, or the resourses, to go out and buy Valentine's Day gifts. This is an easy way to show someone you care. :)

Valentine's Day gift bags.
Valentines's Day candy, pencils, small toys, stickers, and such. Have fun with this!
Valentines. Hey, who doesn't like getting a Valentine from the heart?
