I'm a mother of 5, what I'm finding the hardest to tolerate about the tragedy in Japan is the 100,000 kids now in shelters with nothing, not a stuffy, no coloring books and crayons, absoloutly nothing to give them a little joy and remove their minds for a bit from the stress of the situation, no minor comforts, warming themselves with itchy blankets and kerosene lamps, not enough food, and the fear of the unknown. I'd like to bring the kids a bit of comfort, as they are the least prepared to understand what is going on, and the last who should ever be suffering, no child should ever have to go through this. The Red Cross will not take care packages, seems all they want is money. Here is what I'd like to do: Collect NEW backpacks to be filled with NEW items, one soft fuzzy child sized blanket, a coloring pad & crayons, a stuffed animal, toothbrush, toothpaste and soap. It isn't much, but it would let them know we are thinking about them in particular. I'm still trying to find someplace that will help me with this, I'm asking you guys for help too, obviously I can't afford to charter a flight, I just need the "get it there" resource, if anyone has any ideas please let me, I don't want to collect the donations until I know it has someplace to go. Thanks in advance for your help!
