*    Jamaica was this year’s recipient of our annual Christmas toy drive.

Though this is our first year for this toy drive, the response was astounding.  A three-week candy drive resulted in the revenue to provide 500 needy kids with new toys. An “on the spot” survey showed that these children would not have had toys this Christmas.  I cannot effectively express to you the joy in each child’s face as they opened the gifts Considering that some of the children had never received a gift at Christmas (or any other time), this was a joyous occasion had by a

Going forward, A Child’s Cry foundation will begin collecting toys for the children at the end of September 2002 for the 2002 Christmas toy drive.  With your help, we will increase the number of toys for children, some of whom have never experienced the joy of gifts at Christmas.

 Our special thanks to all the people who helped with candy and toy drive during the Christmas holidays. We appreciate your spirit. This was truly a blessing to many children and A Child’s Cry thanks you.

We would also like to mention:  Peter Gutzmer from Air Jamaica Cargo Kingston Jamaica for helping us to obtain a reduced rate for the shipping of the toys.
