Because They Gave Us Barbies … and Hot Wheels … and Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots!


I don’t know about you but I grew up with the Jerry Lewis telethon every Labor Day. Truth? We didn’t have cable until I was in high school so the television entertainment pickings were pretty slim. And then there was Band-Aid, one of my favorite collaborative musical efforts of all time, followed by USA for Africa, Farm-Aid, Earth Day, Save the Duck-Billed Platypus … or the Plat-Billed Ducktypus … or something like that. I can’t remember.

Anyway … when the Mattel Corporation contacted me to help them with their Easter Toy Basket Giveaway, I jumped at the chance. After all, they gave me years of joy through Barbie. Which, as many of you know, I’m still enjoying today. Plus there was talk of chocolate. Sold.

So, without further ado, I want to share with you today a very moving video. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You could possibly sneeze, in which case you should really have a tissue handy. Go ahead. I’ll wait while you get one. Yes, toilet paper is fine, too. Just hurry up.

Now … watch the video and, when you’re done, take a chance on the big prize. All you have to do the enter the contest is click the rafflecopter link below and sign up.


Wait!!!! Don’t forget About the contest. Seriously, who doesn’t want toys?

Let’s save these bunnies together!
