We have just finished selling products to assist Children of Destiny, an organization that currently supports 28 orphans between the ages of 4 and 16. Children of Destiny was founded by Margaret Mponda and is located in Moshi, Tanzania. Unfortunately, the organization has not gained sufficient funds to keep up with operating costs and needs financial support for the needs of the children. The baskets we sold were handmade in Tanzania to support Children of Destiny. 100% of the profits on the baskets went back to the organization to support operation and projects to better enrich the children. Currently projects that need funding include the building of a vegetable garden and purchasing of two cars. The end goal for the projects is to purchase 3 acres of land in Tanzania so the organization will not have to worry about rent. The local support through these sales was overwhelming. We greatly appreciate everyone's contributions to this project . If you wish to further support Margaret and the kids, visit www.childrenofdestinyfoundation.org to make a direct donation.
Supporting Children of Destiny
Graham's was recently interviewed as part of Tiggly's new "Ask a Retailer" feature on their website. Tiggly is a great new brand, sold in the store, that we are very excited about. It is the newest way for kids to interact with the iPad using tactile colorful blocks that can be safely used on the surface of the device. Apps can be downloaded that allow kids to do things including play with stamps, create animations and learn about animals.

Our New Website is Up!
Welcome to the new grahamstoys.com! We have updated the design of our website because at Graham's we are always trying to keep things fresh by constantly staying on the lookout for new products we can offer, our website reflects this by altering its own design. However all the content of our website is in the same locations it was before so you can still conveniently access the information you need from the same places you already know.
We are very pleased to announce that Graham's has won Best Children's Haircuts in Greenwich Magazine's 2013 issue of Best of the Gold Coast. We would like to thank all the people who supported us in receiving this award.
