As the Director of the Kids Wish Network Distribution Department, I see so many wonderful toys and products for children come through our warehouse. It makes my heart so happy to know that children across the nation are going to smile and be comforted by the various different toys and merchandise that companies so generously donate.
In order to keep track of the different things that the children want or enjoy, we send out surveys. From these surveys, we have found that some of the simplest things that children truly love are coloring books and crayons. You would be surprised at how many children enjoy this simple activity despite all of the high-tech gadgets out there on the market today! It’s a calming and relaxing activity for kids who are suffering from illnesses, distressed while dealing with harsh circumstances like homelessness or trying to cope with other traumatic situations such as abuse.
Probably because of their worldwide appeal to children of all ages, coloring books and crayons are the hardest products to secure in donations. We are in desperate need of these items. The children served by our gift-giving programs deserve the very best, please help if you can.
