Hats to bags... Monkey Mission #4

Our hat project is all but officially over! (We'll be delivering them on Friday, to Veteran's Inc in Worcester). Which means it's time for....


I've been busy gathering supplies for young troops to decorate bags to give to UMass Memorial's Children's Hospital. They will take canvas bags, decorate them with fabric markers, and then fill them with some goodies for sick kiddos at the hospital. Each bag will have a coloring book, crayons, stickers, and bubbles, as well as a special little something from whoever decorated the bag.

If anyone is interested in helping out with this, making a bag or donating some supplies, I highly suggest ordering bags from cheaptotes.com. We are using the 14x16 size bag, which costs just $1.19. Then, you can paint or use fabric markers on the outside. If you are interested in donating supplies, here is a list of things they could use:

  • Infant and Toddler board books
  • No spill tumbler cups
  • Disposable sippy cups
  • Wrist rattles
  • I Spy and pop-up books
  • Coloring books
  • Plastic infant toys and rattles
  • Squeezable stress balls
  • Bubbles
  • Playing cards
  • Phase 10 and Skip Bo cards
  • Pinwheels
  • Matchbox cars
  • Crayola markers and colored pencils
  • Unpainted wooden crafts (birdhouses, boats, cars, etc.)
  • Colorful bandaids
  • Crayons (individual boxes
They cannot accept any stuffed animals for sanitary reasons.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me mrmeadors@gmail.com (for best results, put "monkey mission" in the subject line). I'll be accepting things until mid-March. Thank you!
