Little Red Stories
Wagons used to give prizes to kids in need. Our non profit used Radio Flyers to pass out beanie babies and other prizes to kids, while explaining how to treat animals well. A win-win situation!
I remember using my little red wagon to transport my stuffed animals around when I was little.
We bought our oldest son which he is 26 a radio flyer wagon , the one with the wood on top of it when he was about 1. We always have pulled him in it while he was little everywhere we go like camping, fishing, and just around the house. When he got bigger he started pulling his puppies around in it and then he got him a 4-wheeler and he had pulled it behind it. So 10 years later when we had our other child he started pulling him around in it. Til one day I accidently back up over it. I hated that I done that but I just did not see it. I had found a smaller one without the wood on the land he had bought and now using it in pictures when I do family pictures. I also carried my props in one too to help me get it to the places I need alot of stuff at . So it has so many uses for us and if I was to win I would not just give it all to just one charity I would like to spread it out to a few of them like give most of them to the children's hospital for the children to be pulled around in at the hospitals and would love to give some to the animal rescue centers for abused animals to help them also. That would be helping two causes that means so much to me. The children and animals can not really speak for their selves so at least they can maybe have a little special help from me and ya..Thank you , Tina Atkins from Red Boiling Springs, Tn.
As a volunteer for the Welcome to America Project, we have donated dozens of Radio Flyer wagons to the children of refugee families who have relocated from war torn nations around the globe. These families have nothing but hope when they come to America the Radio Flyers always light up the faces of the little ones! Many have never seen a wagon but quickly find out how to have fun in the desert sun!
I remember the old wagon we had as kids.My brother was older than I and that wagon toted food to sick neighbors clean clothes to elderly and anything else we had to haul around.Mom and Dad had a plan and we were the delivery so that old wagon served many folks in 1956.
When my two sister's and I were young. We would fill our radio flyer up with pop bottles. We would pull our wagon about a mile to the candy store. Trade in our bottles. We would take turns pulling our radio flyer back home. Enjoying our candy too.
Bringing Smiles to the Children's Cancer Clinic, or Fast And Furious, PCH Drift! My wife and I earned a Radio Flyer from the Tesla referral program, and although our son would have loved to race it around the neighborhood, we felt the mini Tesla from Radio Flyer had a better future at Phoenix Children's Hospital. The results were so much more than we could ever have hoped for!! We are now waiting for our second referral code from Tesla so that we can donate a second mini Tesla Radio Flyer to the Cancer Center, allowing for full drag racing to commence!

Yesterday, I cleaned the yard. Dragging that little red wagon along to carry grass clippings. Enjoyed the weather.
I used My Radio Flyer to carry my arc welder & rods & helmet until my kids were born. Then they played with it for many years. Now it's back with my welder on it.
Loved my radio flyer wagon when we had it. The wheels got busted when we used the wagon as a wheelbarrow to replace all of the sod in our yard. We had to replace the sod because we had a chinch bug problem, so the wagon did us good. Now we have a beautiful yard that the children can play in! But we need a new wagon lol.
Manyyears ago when my daughter was in girl scouts, I was the leader and my husband needed the car for work and living a mile from the First Baptist Church in Fresno. I needed to get from home to the church with the craft supplies and materials. The only way to tote was our red flyer wagon. We also used in delivering Girl Scout cookies during cookie time.
When my son was born he had a heart murmer.The doctor said it would most likely go away as he got older.When he turned one we found out it wasn't gonna get better and that it was gonna get worse until the point where he would have open heart surgery.When he turned 8 the condition (Artic Stenosis)had worsened to the point it became critical.He always wanted to play all sports and it was apperent that would probabally never happen.We came in contact with dr.Rosen and dr.MCCONNELL both from Children's hospital in columbus Ohio.They decided to try a new procedure called the Ross procedure.It was very sucessful and Nathanial came through everything like it never happened.While we were at the hospital we decided we were gonna go start a wagon run and raise money to buy new wagons for the hospital.They cost 500 dollars and so far we have raised enough for 7 wagons.With your help we can work together and make sure other children have a ride to and from office visits and to their rooms before sergury.Thank you from Nathanials wagons for a cause.
