Cheery Cheeks Mopsy Mouse Comes Through
I get all kinds of phone calls from people looking for stuffed toys.
A few weeks ago a Father called me about a project his 8 or 9 year old daughter was working on.
It seems his young daughter and her pal visited a friend in the hospital a number of times while he was laid up there. They saw all the kids there who needed a boost, so they decided they wanted to do something for them. They had a tag sale with stuff they got together and raised $300 to buy something for the kids in the hospital who needed something to cheer them up.
This is where I come into the picture. I’m the Closeout King at a stuffed toy company in southern Vermont and I sell last year’s teddy bears at discount prices. What so great is these two little girls decide they want to do something to help some other kids and they did. They raised $300 and came to me and basically said to me, “Give me the best deal you can for some kids in a hospital”.
I picked out an assortment for them which was a “good deal” and they went happily on their way. One of the young ladies fell in love with “Cheery Cheek” Mopsy Mouse” and she went home with one of them. A couple of weeks later I received a hand-made ” Thank You” note from them and it was great. I’m a grand father and I have 18 grandchildrens. I have a soft spot in my heart for grand-kids, especially when they doing something for others. These two young ladies made an extra effort to help other kids. They raised money – $300 – to provide happiness to some other kids who were having a hard time in their lives. I am happy to have been a part of it.
Here’s the Thank You note.
