What I will say is that you don't have to spend a lot to make a child smile. We went to the dollar store, bought 2 plastic shoe boxes (you can use cardboard but I figured the box could be used for something after it was unpacked) and filled them with toys, school supplies and hygiene items. In the end, it cost $13/box to fill plus $7/box to help cover shipping costs - and we packed those boxes to the brim! It took 3 rubber bands on each to keep them closed!
