Have buddied you a couple of credits for you to use in finding some books for your daughter's friend.  Will also look thru my VHS tapes to see if I have anything appropriate for him.  Thanks for trying to help this young boy have a happy Christmas.

I'm pretty sure I still have a set of Rocky and Bullwinkle vhs tapes, now to locate them. I'll look around in my collections tonight or Friday. I may have a new stuffed animal or two somewhere around also. Will get back to you.

Is there some specific VHS tapes that you are looking for or would anything be okay?

I could donate if I knew the age and gender. I used to own a store and have a lot of left over inventory. I could send  books, stuffed animals, sticker books, if I still have them, christmas stuff, some figurines but I wouild need to know the ages in order to know what types of things to give. I can also give some tings for the mom. That way, she won't be the only one not getting anything. Please send me the info and their address. I will be happy to help. Sandra
