    The Temptations Resort has joined Give A Toy Get A Smile in collecting toys and numerous articles for the poor and sick children in Cancun and the surrounding areas. Please check the wesite www.giveatoygetasmile.org
    to see all the work we have done and all the children's smiles :D. I'm a Registered Nurse from NY and after Hurricane Wilma, the children's needs became quite apparent and Give A Toy was born. We have since given out over 3000 toys, school bags and school supplies, coloring books and crayons, stuffed animals, etc. to the children. We celebrate Christmas and Dia del NiƱos (Day of the Children) by handing out toys and we distribute school bags in August, at the beginning of school, filled with the school neccesities. We have also donated enough books to a school in Valladolid Nuevo for the teacher to start a library.
    All we need the Temptations folks to do is to bring me a toy! Temptations has a box set up for the drop-off..ask about it! You are guaranteed to make a child smile :D ...a small price for a priceless smile! :D
    THANKS! Nancy

    Give A Toy

    The Give A Toy Get A Smile Banner and Box have been placed in the Temptations Resort. Please help us to fill this box up by Christmas. The children are so appreciative of the smallest toys! It's nice to know that someone is thinking for them during the holidays!
    Please add your name and city to your toy so it can be added to the Give A Toy Get A Smile donators list. Thanks for helping!

    to see where we have drop-off sites, what we do and where we go. We even have a new Forum for people to talk about their experiences of going out and meeting the kids!

    I would LOVE to hurry on back to Cancun (like hop on a plane later today!)...however three things in the way 1. finances 2. who to watch the brats and 3. I have a job. :( (am a nurse like you!)

    Anyhoo. I will check out the site and I will definatly bring something when we head down (hopefully soon!!!). I love shopping clearance racks and there is a ton on sale at Target right now. My brats need NOTHING so we can pick some stuff up for Cancun kids! :D
