How you can help a child in need

My friend, and fellow blogger, Mark Graban of the Lean Blog is asking us to help a child in need.  Specifically, he has a launched a virtual toy drive for children staying in a hospital.

I don’t ask much of my blog readers — but if you’re looking for an opportunity to make a donation, please consider your local children’s hospital. You can either buy new DVDs or new toys of all sorts. Different hospitals list their own policies on new versus used and the types of items they recommend donating (for example, stuffed toys are often not preferred because of cleanliness issues).

We spend a lot of time talking about respecting people in the lean world.  This is a perfect opportunity to practice what we preach.

Here is a link to the full article where Mark shares some ideas for how you can help.  Please consider doing so.

    Thanks for the link. A $10 DVD can bring a lot of relief and relaxation to a sick kid.
