Stuffed Animals for Haitian Children

Our Place to Paws is helping Animal Artist Peggy Sigler Dey collect new or gently used stuffed animals for injured or frightened children in Haiti. Peggy started the venture after learning that a U.S. hospital ship was carrying 1000 stuffed animals to help comfort the children.

If you'd like to find out where to send stuffed animals for the cause, email Deybydeystudio(at)aol.com (replacing the (at) with the @ sign of course). Peggy will give you an address where you can mail in donations.

I'll be flying down to North Carolina on February 6th to help pack up stuffed animals for shipments to Haiti, which Peggy is arranging.

We realize that food and medicine are more immediate needs, of course, but as many organizations are working to provide those badly needed items, this is another way we can help the children of Haiti, this time emotionally.

Thank you for your help!
