My birthday plans!

My birthday is next week, and I was trying to come up with something fun to do. My family and I usually go hiking for my birthday, but I'm still too broken to hike. So I was trying to come up with another fun activity, but I was having a really hard time coming up with something I thought was really fun that I was physically able to do. Also, most of my family will be out of town on my birthday, so that was another issue. I couldn't come up with anything! Then I started thinking, why does the activity have to be centered around me and what I want to do? Let's do something for someone else! That always helps when I'm starting to feel sorry for my broken self. :) I did a little research, and decided to collect and make school supply kits for the Springs Rescue Mission. These kits consist of the following:

Solid colored backpacks
Blunt-tip scissors
Colored pencils
Fat markers
Glue sticks
Hand sanitizer
Notebooks – wide and college ruled
Pocket folders
Supply box
Tissue – pocket-size
White glue

I would love love LOVE to be able to donate 50 of these kits-but that means I'm going to need a ton of help!! If you are interested in helping me, first off, you are awesome. Second, here's how you can help! Mostly, I need people to donate these supplies. I called Wal-Mart, and they said that they will be stocking their school supplies this upcoming week. Also, I bet the Dollar Store would be a good place to find some of this stuff! You can drop off any of these items at my house up until July 11th at noon. My address is 9270 Bellcove Circle, Colorado Springs, 80920. Please don't TP my house, just drop off school supplies. :P After the 11th at noon, we will be at my church putting together these kits. The church is just a couple blocks away from my house-8610 Scarborough Drive. The church is right down the street from Liberty High School. Another way to help is to join us at the church on my birthday (the 11th) to help us put together the kits. I really hope you will all be willing to help-tell your friends about this too! The more people I can get involved, the better. :) Thanks everyone!!!
