(And here's where you're thinking, Kim lives in Nebraska - and is deathly afraid of buses. Wait, no, that last part isn't true, but really... why did they email her?, and I'm thinking, I know, right? I was confused at first, too.)
It turns out that they do a toy drive each holiday season, and this year's event provided 2,000 toys (and the chance to meet some celebrities) to children with diabetes at the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at Columbia University Medical Center. I thought that was a neat idea and wanted to mention it to you guys, as I didn't know that 1. there was a toy drive anywhere for children with diabetes, and 2. that this diabetes center even existed. Pretty cool!
