Houston-area locals Danielle and Adam Busby, parents of the only all-female quintuplets in the country, are best known for their appearance on TLC's reality series OutDaughtered. This fall, The Busbys partnered with educational toy company Learning Resources to show parents easy and fun ways to help their kids learn through play every day. Shortly after the partnership began, Hurricane Harvey hit, and it became clear to the Busbys and Learning Resources that there was a real need and opportunity to leverage their partnership to help Houston-area families.

This past Saturday, the Busbys, their six daughters and Learning Resources met with local families recovering from Harvey at Lighthouse Christian Ministries in Bacliff, Texas, to give away the first of more than 1,500 toys and games donated by Learning Resources. The donation is valued at $75,000, and collectively, the items weigh more than two tons. 

Kids have missed a lot of school due to Harvey, and Learning Resources hopes that these toys and games will not just bring happiness and smiles to kids’ faces, but also help them learn.
