I have someone in Toronto, Canada willing to donate her fisher price collection to Holy Cross School. The task at hand is how to get it here lol.

Anyone have any connections or suggestions for shipping from Toronto?

ahhh that is TOUGH, it costs more to ship than purchasing it itself. HOPEFULLY someone in Canada could bring it down! That is so great, hope it gets down here.

Thanks Kra-Z-K

I know it is a tough one, but I have my fingers crossed that even some of it can get down here.

I heard fed ex employess get a great discount but I do not know anyone who works there lol.

Contact Francis Wilson at the school for any possible ideas.

I get Fed Ex discounts which are 75% off HOWEVER WITH the 75% off it is still rediculous to ship here. A 14 lb box when I was moving here was OUTRAGEOUS and I ended up shipping it to someone in the states and she brought it down for me.

Thanks Weather, we have actually been working with Francis on this already and have got a lot of school supplies donated through canvasing internet friends.

Yeah the prices can be outrageous Kra-Z-K.

Hopefully a solution will arise somehow.

Thanks for all the input thus far.

Umm... well, I'm in Toronto and I'm coming down on Oct 7. I was planning on only taking a very small suitcase, but I suppose I could take a bigger one to fit some stuff. How much are we talking about?

Steve Lee of Ecologic lives in/near Chicago and comes here frequently, so depending where we're talking about in Canada he maybe could help..... Or I have friends coming here in November from Washington State.

Thanks for all the response. I am sure we can manage to get it here somehow.

Littleegine and Francis I both wrote you.

Pedro2 I will keep your friends in mind also if they are willing to bring some things.

I have friends in canada with kids so getting things is the easy part. It is just getting them here.
