A little help, please, folks…

Stuffed Animal Sleepover Feb 2012 012

This evening I heard about a wonderful charity called Project Smile. Apparently donations of stuffed animals were being requested; the donated stuffed animals then go in the back of State Troopers’ patrol cars etc. so that when they come upon an accident involving a child, they can help the child feel a little better by giving them a stuffed animal, and take their mind off what’s happened.

From the charity’s website:

Project Smile is a federally tax exempt non-profit organization which donates new and previously owned stuffed animals, coloring books/crayons, small toys and children’s reading books for police officers, fire fighters and paramedics to give to children. The goal of Project Smile is to provide all emergency responders throughout New England and eventually throughout the nation, with a continual supply of comfort items to help ease the pain and fear of traumatized children.

I think that’s possibly the most awesome idea ever. Details are over on their website for the curious…
