Carleigh was a patient at Shriner's Hospital for Children in Tampa, Fl and has felt a great need to give back to those who gave so much to help her. Carleigh underwent surgery (femoral rotational osteotomy)on both of her femurs at 8-year-old, then went through some very intense physical therapy for about a year, followed by another surgery to remove the hardware, and another round of physical therapy. Now, at 12-years-old, she is able to walk, run, and play without any pain (a huge accomplishment as she was not able to be active without extreme amounts of pain prior to having her surgeries). Her experience at Shriner's was amazing and has felt a calling to help ever since she became a patient herself. Please help Carleigh to give back to those who helped her and to those who are going through what she truly understands as a challenging (but worth it) process. Our goal is to raise money to be able to fulfill the donation wish list for Shriner's in Tampa.
Per their website, here is the list that we are trying to be able to provide:
"Infants:Toys that have lights and sounds, Crib mobiles, Rattles, bottles and sippy cups; Toddlers/preschoolers: Dora the Explorer, Mickey Mouse and friends, Elmo and friends, Thomas the Train, Dinosaurs, Crayons; School-age children: Arts and crafts, Cars and trucks, Barbies, Baby dolls, Littlest Pet Shop, My Little Pony, Super Hero action figures; Adolescents: Wallets (male and female), Men's cologne and body wash, Women's perfume and body wash, Makeup and nail polish, Model cars, glue and paint, Craft-bead art, jewelry, latch hook, Uno cards; Electronics: Nintendo DS and games, Game Cube game, DVDs (rated G, PG and PG-13); We also have a need for Spanish books, DVDs and games." They are not able to accept used toys or electronics so all money raised will be used to purchase these items and will be given directly to Shriner's in Tampa, Fl where Carleigh was taken care of.
Thank you for your consideration and please pass this on so that we are able to reach our goal!
