Lets all bring a GKTW item to the Podcast

I know a bunch of us are going to be going to the live PodCast taping on December 11th at the Dolphin. How about everybody planning on bringing an item for GKTW.

There's a list out there somewhere of things they need - I'll see if I can find it and post a link. I remember that batteries are something they need.
-----------------------
DarthVader92 was kind enough to post the list below. Looks like lots of things that can easily be brought from home for those of us traveling.

I like this idea too, but is there someone willing to take the items over there? Shipping is ridiculously expensive.

I was presuming that we could get a volunteer from one of the locals ("townies") to drop it off.

I would be happy to take the items over to GKTW. I did this when we had the Poly meet.

Hello,

This is such a great idea, DISers are so generous! I'd be happy to help transport donations as well.

One thing I thought I'd add is that GKTW is also in need of is items for Halloween. The Village held a Halloween party every Monday in October this year and it was such a success they are now celebrating Halloween on Mondays all year long!

Each child gets a Halloween goody bag full of little prizes, and all of those items are donated - things like cute pencils, stickers, little puzzles, strands of beads, fake bugs, vampire teeth, small jars of bubbles, etc. Halloween-themed items are great, though general Disney or other character/kid-friendly items are fine.

I mention this because there are probably some great Halloween items to be had on clearance right now, so even a few dollars could go a long way. The Dollar Spot at Target is great for this kind of thing (though right now a lot of that stuff is Christmas-themed). And these items might be easier to pack than a gas-powered pressure washer

Just wanted to remind people of this. If you're coming to the PodCast taping, why not bring along some small item for GKTW.
