Playgroup Idea *Edited

Hi Everyone - I'm looking for an idea for a cause for our October Playgroup with a Purpose. We've decided to try to alternate between International charities (i.e. AHOPE) and domestic charities. This month I'm looking for an International charity. We don't collect money, but things, so it would have to be one that has a wishlist of some sort. If you have any ideas, please leave them in the comments section! Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who left a comment with an idea - these are great and I will file them away for the future. I'm especially excited to do a playgroup for Ethiopia Reads in the future. For this month, we decided to collect for an organization that works with children in Haiti. They have been hard hit by the hurricanes and are in desperate need of food and supplies. You can read more about it here.

Again - thanks for the ideas!!
