We do ask please no plush toys or stuffed animals. They cannot be donated even brand new because of germs! Thank you!

If you'd like to make a donation in honor or memory of someone for the holidays you can do so and we will send a card letting them know that a donation was made in their name. If you ever don't know what to get that person who has everything, a donation to made a difference in the life of a child can be the perfect gift.
Donations can be mailed to our address or made via PayPal on the side of the blog. Checks can be made out the Jedediah Thomas Smith Foundation.

We thank you all for your generosity and love! Without you, this wouldn't be possible.
