What Operation Scribble Needs Most

Crayons 4 Kids gives a new toy to every child from newborn to teenagers and the charity says each year it's most difficult to take care of children under 3 and teenagers. Here's what they are in most need of:

• Infant/Toddler: rattles, musical toys, stacking rings, shape sorters, light up toys, socks, bibs, clothes, teething toys, music boxes and crib mobiles.
• Teens: gift cards (such as Target, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, iTunes), make up kits, nail polish, spa kits, axe body supplies, manicure supplies, headphones , body wash and sprays, lotion, perfume, remote control drones, new video games and movies (DVD only).

Thank you, RK-aRmy for once again supporting us and Operation Scribble.
