My service learning class is collecting Beanie Babies to send to Iraq. We send them to a soldier who is from Indiahoma. He and his friends throw the Beanie Babies over a 15 ft high fence to Iraqi children on the other side. JB told me that there is a watch tower nearby and from there you can see the children who are delighted when it rains Beanie Babies. I think they throw candy to the children also. Let me know if you know of any Beanie Babies wanting a free trip to Iraq. I can hook them up.
