Emily's 3rd Annual BandAid Drive

Don’t forget that Emily’s 3rd Annual BandAid Drive is going on right now. It started on November 1st and going on through November 30th, however we will accept them through the middle of December when we present them to the hospital. Emily’s Bandaid Drive started 3 years ago when she was in the hospital and had been poked and the nurse went to put a regular bandaid on her.  Emily wasn’t happy about the boring bandaid, so I asked why they didn’t have any fun bandaids, only thinking that they didn’t order them.  The nurse explained that the hospital does not buy these, and that they are donated, but they normally do not get enough donations to make it throughout the year.  When Emily heard this, she wanted to help the hospital collect bandaids and this started our bandaid drive 3 years ago.  The bandaid drive continues to grow each year, and many local schools have become involved getting the children involved and many local shops, vets and doctors office help. But because Emily has a blog and many people from everywhere follow her blog, we also started working with smilemakers.com 3 years ago and they have a special from November 1st through the 30th, if you use the code Emily10, you will get 10% percent off bandages and free shipping.   If you want to help out Emily with her 3rd Annual BandAid Drive, please mail your bandaids to : The Hubbel Family, PO Box 5383, Midlothian, VA 23112.  Each year we have been able to help more hospitals with bandaids.  Thank  you so much for your support in helping Emily continuing to bring a smile to all the kids fighting in the hospital.
