In February at my school we made Valentine's Day cards for children at the local kids hospital. Our teacher told us that people always think to give at Christmas, but they don't give for other holidays. I told my mom that I wanted to do a toy drive or something for kids that need it. She said ok and helped me get it organized.
We started collecting at my "The Olivia" Birthday party. I had 18 toys. I set a goal for collecting 100 toys and called local toy stores to let me come and set up a box in their stores. Lots of people helped me reach my goal.
