Snowball Express -- Check it Out

About Snowball Express: "Those who protect us deserve our thanks, our support and our help. Those in the Armed Forces who have laid down their lives in service to our way of life deserve our gratitude and our commitment to helping the family members they left behind.

The Snowball Express will provide a holiday experience for every child who has lost a parent while serving in our military forces during the Afghanistan and Iraq conflict. We will be bringing the children and surviving parent or guardian from throughout the nation to Orange County on December 7th, 8th and 9th, 2006 for a holiday party and a trip to Disneyland. "

Thanks Bill for posting this event. I checked out their web site and then emailed them. I have 200 or 300 Beanie Babies and Buddies in mint condition to donate to the kids' toy drive. I used to display them but ran out of room. I also collect Teddy Bears, books, CD's, and other things. As you know, being an avid book collector, there's only so much room, even when you have wall to wall bookcases!

Thanks,
Dwyline
