Honoring Sully By Giving Back to St Jude
I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
This is a forward from Tabitha and Jason Farrar:

As you can see there is plenty to choose from. There are some rules that need to be followed. All toys need to be able to be sanitized and can not be used. Everything has to be new. No stuffed animals are allowed or toys guns. Also not allowed: food items, candy, cloth baby dolls, balloons, porcelain dolls, VHS Movies, religious items, and soap bubble mixtures. Also, handmade/fabric items should be from pet-free areas and must be sealed in a Ziploc Bag. This includes: Do-Rags/ Bandanas, quilts, tote bags, bibs/burp pads.
Jason and I will be delivering the items personally on Sully's birthday, May 1. So, we are asking that any items you may be wanting to donate need to be received by April 28th. This will give us time to organize the toys to be ready to deliver. Again, we appreciate anything you may be able to donate and we know Sully would too. The children will appreciate it also and you will be putting smiles on many children's faces.
Remember, everything must be new!
You may send your new gift to the following address, and they will be delivered to Jason and Tabitha. They need to be here time for me to deliver them to them by April 28th.

I am so impressed with Jason and Tabitha for wanting to do such a sweet thing in Sully's memory to honor is birthday by giving to the children who are fighting the fight that Sully did. They never cease to amaze me with their love and generosity toward St Jude. We have a wonderful group here, and I know each of us can help them with this endeavor. There is a very wide price range, so this request should fit into everyone's budget. Let's show our love.
