VAW Toy Donation Outreach Program

VAW Toy Donation Outreach Program's Logo

Fundraising Campaign Description
The Toy Donation Outreach Program was started by Laura Whiting, an old high school classmate of VAW’s Founder and CEO, Mark Stanley, who saw the work VAW was doing online. Laura herself has been bedridden for the majority of the past 9 years due to an incurable disease.

Knowing the pain and suffering she herself was experiencing, Laura channeled the little energy she had into handcrafting toys for the boys and girls at hospital. During the Fall of 2015, Laura began her project.

Your donations will enable Laura to continue providing toys, art supplies, and blankets to children in need. With this additional funding Laura plans to increase the number of toys sent to current locations in the Dominican Republic and hopefully be able to begin sending packages to children in other communities around the world served by the VAW.

It is special outreach projects such as the Toy Donation Outreach Program and special people with a heart of gold such as Laura that make Volunteers Around the World able to help make the world a better place. Volunteer your time. Donate your energy.
