Yes, these mouseketeer ears arrived in my front porch and we finally received rain in Aledo! It's still raining this morning. Hope everyone else in North Texas is receiving some. We might actually have to skip mowing the yard today because it's too wet. When was the last time anyone could say THAT around here?

Add Us!

Please add me and DH, Carlos for the meet. So happy to find a local GKTW meet we can attend and can't wait to meet Pete and Walter. We attended Disapalooza in 2009 but the only podcaster we met was Kevin so this will be a real treat.

Let me know if I can help out in anyway.

Thanks Theresa for alerting me to this! I haven't had much time to be on the boards as much anymore (stupid work actually expecting me to work). Can't wait to experience a little disney here at home. We are heading to the world just two weeks after this meet too!

I am very interested in this meet, but unfortunately only a maybe at this point, as we are allll the way out in Lubbock! (3 total - Lori, Bob and Alex (8 year old son)

One question, though! California wines??? International wines??? No Texas wines!? Wait...maybe because we can get those any time...

But seriously, if you would like to add something like that to the auction or silent auction, I know a few people and could try to get something together - whether we get to attend or not Anything to help!

Oklahoma? Don't worry, I hear there are some very good boxed wines out there!

I'm sorry... My mom is from Oklahoma, so I really couldn't resist - it was just too easy! I will ask around and see what I can do and then contact you! I'd like to do something even if we can't attend the event!

I did not copy over items like ladders, ant killer, etc. I think I would have a hard time shipping those! Don't feel obligated to purchase items from the Wish List if you attend. I just wanted to give everyone that opportunity if you so desired.



Help Give Kids The World keep costs down - and smiles up - by donating goods and services from our Wish List. Our list includes items needed for our daily gift-giving program, supplies for our Family Entertainment Program and items to help keep the Village sparkling.

In addition to the potential gifts listed below, we can gladly accept gift cards to stores in which we could purchase these items.

Support for our Gift Giving Program:
Batteries – AA, AAA, C, D
Disposable cameras
Autograph Books
Photo Albums
Plush
Small toys and games for children of all ages (with batteries)
Board Games
Hand Held Games
Travel Games
Puzzles
Teenage Gifts
MP3 Players
Wii games (rated E)
Travel DVD Players

Support for Village Entertainment & Family Programs:
Candy (no gum, no chocolate)
Sunscreen
Adult Size Pirate Costumes
DVD-R (MINI - 30 minutes and/or 60 minutes)
Movies (G or PG rated on DVD and Blu Ray Disc)
Red and white crepe paper streamers
Golf Balls (preferably colors other than white)
Rain Ponchos
Wheelchairs (adult and child size)
Disposable Cutlery
Pillow Cases for Wish Pillows (pattern will be provided)
Gift Cards for material - Joann Fabrics, Walmart, Visa, MC
Balloons:
Mylar
Mylar – Happy Birthday
12” Purple
Any type

Help keep our administrative costs down:
CD's - Blank (High Speed)
CD Envelopes with plastic window
Mailing Supplies
Bubble Wrap
Peanuts
#0 and #00 Padded Envelopes
2” Packaging Tape
Office Supplies
Pens
Scissors
Paper Clips
White Out
2 x 2 Post It Notes
Copy Paper – 8.5 x 11
Just curious and I may have missed this in a post somewhere, but who is taking the donated item back to GKTW? I am guessing we should bring some of the smaller items? I have an adult pirates costume but it has been used once. I wonder if that would be okay?

I was assuming I would just mail the items to GKTW. I don't think I included anything on the wish list that I copied that was huge, did I? Hopefully it won't cost me hundreds to mail the items!

Gift Cards

I initially really liked the idea of the wish list, as I want to do more than give just the cost to be at the meet event. But the more I got to thinking about it, does it make sense to buy a lot of games, scissors, etc and ship them to Florida, when I don't think there's anything on the list they can't buy there themselves?

Maybe it would be better to try to set some kind of record for the most gift cards to places like Target, Office Depot, etc so they can get exactly what they need, when they need it, in the quantities they need. I would think that all of the chains we have here in Texas would be the same as they have around the Village. Then we could send all the cards back to Florida with Pete for Kathy to deliver (as she is going to deliver the contributions that come in at the meets in Florida). In addition, they may be able to use the cards to shop online and get better deals.

What does everyone think about this?

I really like that idea. Let's hear from a few people and if everyone agrees I will pull the information about the Wish List and put a little blurb about accepting gift card donations to let GKTW purchase items.

I need to take my name off the list. My cousin surprised everyone by getting married and they are having their reception/party that weekend. Y'all have a great time!
