I have made all of the phone calls necessary to the people in charge of donations and volunteering at Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence, The Ronald McDonald House in Providence, and Boston Children's Hospital. Unfortunately the representatives and officials that I need to speak with are unavailable on weekends, so I will have to wait until Monday - November 22, 2010.
In other news, my friend Katie suggested it to me last night that I design the donation and collection boxes to look crayon boxes. I think it is a great idea, much better than my original plan to color pictures from coloring books and then attach them to the boxes! Do you have any ideas of how I should decorate the boxes? Let me know!
Please pass around the link for this website, get everyone involved - even if you are not in the state of Rhode Island you can still make a difference, you can still make children smile.
Thank you! :)
