This is a donation swap. You will buy crayons, coloring books, markers, colored pencils, sketch pads or puzzles and send them to the charity. Please check them out here. I have no personal ties to this charity however the story just touched my hear being a mom of 3. August 31st is the 2 year anniversary of Riah's death.
Since back to school time is here I thought this would be a good time to help them out. The Walmart in my area is selling 24 packs of Crayola crayons for .25 this week. The dollar store always has an assortment of coloring books and puzzles. Markers, colored pencils and sketch pads are also on sale at most stores too. Almost forgot..................You will email your partner a pic of the goodies you are sending.

So, for the requirements.............

*You will need to spend a minimum of $4 before shipping. You don't have to buy all of the above listed items. For example you can buy 4 packs of crayons and 4 coloring books or 2 puzzles a pack of markers, crayons and a coloring book.
*This may sound odd to some people but I am making it a requirement to buy Crayola crayons. If you have ever colored with generic crayons you will understand. Like I said some Walmart stores have them for .25 this week. Go grab a couple!
*Items must be in NEW condition. No used items please!
*I would prefer people with no less than a 5 rating. HOWEVER I will base my decision on a case by case basis. I realize some of you have gotten rated unfairly. Please remember, I reserve the right to ban anyone I choose. I really don't want flakers in this swap! Really! This is going to a charity. If you have the audacity to flake on ill children that are stuck in a hospital then you are a pathetic person! Karma.

Great swap idea, but I don't understand how we are supposed to rate our partners? Do we take a digital photo of what we are sending and email it? Or....?

well due to some unfair ratings i cant join the swap but i am sending as well maybe some of the others like me will feel the same way.

TO: user2637 I was slightly distracted when creating this swap. I added in the sending info. Yes, You will take a pic and send it to your partner so they know what you sent. Sorry about that.
TO: badandknowsit2 I checked out your profile and edited the requirements. I am just trying to be cautious. I realize that sometimes people aren't as fair as others.
