So as I mentioned in his birthday post, Sam had a "toonie party." (A "toonie" is the nickname for Canada's $2 coin. The $1 coin has a loon on it so it became a "loonie" and then when the "toonie" came out it somehow just grew into a rhyming nickname. I don't really like it but that's what it's known as.) He decided to donated his charity portion to Mennonite Central Committee and make school kits. (You can read more about MCC here and school kits here.) We bought a lot of the supplies on a trip to Target last week but, after getting some advice from MCC, we made another stop yesterday at Wal-Mart to finish things off.

And a huge thank you to everyone who donated toonies for Sam's party. He couldn't have done it without you.
