 Ok. Toys for Tots is about to start up. PRETTY PLEASE. donate a toy. It would mean so much to not only those children, but my dh. LOL

he does the whole season. And it breaks his heart to watch the amount of donations slowly go down.

And really. Walmart *where they are most of the time* has great deals on little cheap toys. Like $5, and they specifically price them that low FOR the cause most of the time. I have seen them go through a day or two beforehand and LOWER prices so that people can donate.

and is $5 going to put you out THAT bad?

and please, dont forget the older kids! usually they get toys for younger children.

For those who needed the website =]

I donate to Toys 4 Tots, United Way & give to our local mission regularly.  I think I'm covered in the good will toward men dept.

Thanks for posting this.I am really active with the Toys for Tots program through my husband's squadron.I would like to add something, if you don't mind.We get more donations for babies and toddlers than we do for older kids,so when you are looking for something to donate,maybe consider something that would be more for an older child/tween.This year the demand for toys is huge,so everything little thing helps!!!! Thanks!!

I just re-read what I wrote & it comes off snotty.  I did not mean for it to, sorry.  Sometimes my sarcasm goes a bit overboard.  I was actually sincere-and we donate all year long (to United Way & the local mission that is)  Okay, I'm off to bed now!
