Anyone who knows us knows how obsessed Mom is over Marie from the Disney movie "The Aristocats".
Just a "few" of her stuffed animal collection.
They all had to be bagged up when our bedroom wall was torn up looking for the leaking pipe.
Well, Mom decided that she needed to declutter the bedroom. So, what to do with all these stuffed animals?
One of Mom's friends works with a lady from Guatemala and the lady and her husband formed a small organization (http://linkzforkidz.org/index.html) who, since 1999, have worked on various projects to alleviate some of the needs of poor people living in rural communities in different small towns of Guatemala, whose needs range from potable water and electricity to food and clothes. So, all of these darling stuffed animals will eventually end up going down there to be loved and enjoyed by the little girls down there. It was extremely hard for Mom to part with these, but knowing where they are going is such a joy for us.
