I wish I had taken a picture but I forgot. We sent off a nice box of animals to our dear friends over at LHBH for them to include in their new baby/birthday gift baskets for little ones with ABS. Head on over to their site to find out more about what they do.
They have a very special place in our hearts and I'm looking forward to a long time working relationship with them. Thanks Tricia and Haley!
We donated our fabulous Cubby Bear as a "make your new baby's first stuffed teddy bear kit". Isn't that a cute idea! We've also donated a couple more for the shower giveaways so make sure you watch and try to win!
Here's a picture of our Cubby:
Don't you think every child should have one just like him to cuddle? :-)
Sweet, yes... but it's no small potatoes either. From what I hear from these busy work from home ladies (a mom and her two teen daughters who work out of their home distribution center) they're sales roll in at a pretty fast clip on any given day. This pre-wrap stuff is VERY popular!
So if you have some time - please pop on over to their blog and say hello and check out all the fun colors and ways to use Pre-Wrap. You'll be amazed... and addicted! We use it when we garden and it's great to keep your hair out of your eyes under your bicycle helmet too (not bulky).
Thanks again ladies! We really appreciate it!
You can listen to the show below (we're on Show #174)- our segment is during the second half of the show - at the top of the hour. But listen to the whole thing because during the first part of the show you'll learn about " My Mommy Wears Combat Boots" and hear the author read her sweet and touching storybook that she wrote for her daughter. Enjoy!

Don't they look excited (especially the puppy!). They are! Because they're going to bring a little bit of joy to 3 young girls who have been very very sad these past few weeks.
I wept about this story when I first read about it over at 5MinutesForMom.com. And then Tricia over at LittleHandBigHeart.com filled me in on the family a bit and the 3 little girls that are now left without their precious baby sister. Tricia did some sleuthing and was able to find an address so we could send the animals off to the girls. Thanks Tricia!
So together we're sending these sweet girls a bit of love from some strangers who are weeping with and praying for them.
Back in February I posted a news story about a 4th grader who donated all her birthday presents to needy children and suggested that we send off one of our fabulous Critters Who Care to this sweet girl for her kindness and to thank her for making the world a better place.
Well, lo and behold her grandmother found the post when doing a search on her granddaughter and she contacted me. We were finally able to get an address to mail the critter and we sent it off this week.
As you can see, this adorable poodle just can't wait to meet Savannah and thank her in person! Thanks Debbie for making this happen!
Do you know of any young kids in need or doing great things in their community? We love giving away animals so let us know.

Update - Savannah loves it:
WOW!!!! Savannah loves her pink poodle purse and her monkey book mark. They are sooooo her. We can not thank you enough for the surprise.

This little Noah's Ark Workshop puppy was sent to Jayden, a sweet little boy who Haylee thought should have someone special to love and hug. We know he'll love it!
Our tiger is one of my personal favorite animals because his face is so adorable and his nose looks so real! The first time I got a shipment of him I immediately picked one out for myself and it's in my bedroom on my dresser mirror! I love it.
He's super soft too - I know Nathan, who is autistic, will love that part and we hope he'll cuddle and snuggle and love the tiger for a very very long time!
Thanks again Haylee for helping us to share our love with another very special child!
Do you know someone in need who might enjoy our critters? Please let us know!
And we're always in need of new sponsors! Visit our sponsor page and help spread the love with stuffed animals and critters who care!
