Please support American toy and children's apparel companies, who may all go out of business on February 10, 2009. They are threatened by a new law by the Consumer Products Safety Commission that is to go into effect next month.

National Bankruptcy Day
The Handmade Toy Alliance
There's a link on the National Bankruptcy site to write to your congressman. This could not only be the end of loads of small American companies, it could also mean the end of donating used children's clothing and toys to charity! It would be against the law to sell or give away untested products, even if you know darn well they are safe (ex. unfinished blocks, or something handmade.)
If you want the option to buy American next Christmas, write today!
