The name of the charity is Not Your Average Nurse. It was formed by Alan Beatty who is the brains behind the idea.

He recruited fellow nurse Breighane Arbo as his sidekick. They were good friends in Nursing School, and have remained close.

Not Your Average Nurse has partnered with Bouchard & Sons Towing and are collecting toys which will be donated to Toys for Tots in time to distribute before Christmas.
