Visiting hospitals once, twice, maybe three times?

Duplicate efforts just caught my eye. It made me wonder what Laredo thinks …




At the end of the day, the children who are hospitalized at this moment are the winners. They got TWO gifts from the community and we hope they also got the return of their health, too!

If you are still in the toy giving mode and were not part of the LWA’s (Laredo Wrestling Alliance) or COLMO’s (City of Laredo Mayor’s Office) earlier efforts but still want to help out another group trying to brighten the holidays of children who may not have the same access to toys as others may have, stop by Legacy Comics. The LPRS is working with Iglesia Shaday who directly works with the DIF orphanage and will be making the trek across the border this week:

The Laredo Paranormal Research Society is collecting toys for the young children in a Nuevo Laredo Orphanage. Many of these children became orphans due to the border violence and kidnappings. The children’s ages are from 11 months to 13 years of age. Please join us by providing a Christmas gift toy and bring happiness to these beautiful children of love. If you want to donate a Christmas toy please bring your donation at:

Legacy Comics Store

Today 1pm – 7pm at
5901 McPherson Rd
Suite #2B
Laredo, TX 78041
(956) 723-4420

I was just sent the info and I understand there might be some exceptions to dropping off toys a bit later – if you are so inclined. Enjoy the Winter Solstice and welcome the return of the sun :).
