Photos I promised

Okay so a long time ago I promised some of the photos from our drop off a few months ago. Well here they are. It was quite a morning, you can read more about it here. Thanks to Mark (at least I think that is how he spells it) who works over at Kapiolani for taking these photos.

Here we are outside of the NICU doors waiting for the head nurse to come and welcome us in. Danya was being a bit shy, but she really did do pretty well.
Here we are posing with a couple of the nurses in the NICU with all the stuff piled in the wagon.

Today I ran to Walmart during Danya's nap, and just because it had AC and I was alone (John was home) I decided to wonder through the clearance toys (Christmas leftovers). I spotted a purple box and I knew right away that it was the snap n style dolls that we love. If you remember we brought one to a very sick little girl on the day of our drop off. The hospital staff member who was with us loved it too because it could be cleaned up so easily. So naturally I needed to see how much they were clearanced for, because if you know Walmart clearance like I do they are very rarely really clearanced, usually like 20% but they were 70% off, only 5.98 a doll.

Since I didn't have Danya with and I could wait in lines I went to the customer service center to talk about if they could donate them, never hurts to ask right? Well the manager who handles that, as you can imagine is a M-F employee so I decided to just buy them and see if anyone else would like to join me in this gift to sick toddlers, and kids. As you can see we've added a donate button on the side of our blog, and that money will go directly to Danya's gift project, or if you can spare even a dollar and just mail it that is great too. The store only had 8 and I took them all. I can't wait to give this small gift to the kids at the hospital.
