Toys for Tots Fundraiser Update...

I know a lot of y'all are sick of hearing about this but that's okay. Everyone has something they are annoying about, right? Right. At least one of the things I'm being annoying about is for a good cause. That makes it better, right? Right. Anyway....

I went over the weekend and got the first few bags of toys for the Toys For Tots Fundraiser. The last two years I've done the fundraiser, I always go a few weeks before the donation date expires to buy a few toys on my own. Kind of as a way to further enforce that's what I'm really doing. And also in hopes it will inspire at least a few more people to make a donation.

Here's the evidence of said purchased toys:



I got 7 toys for $38. It really doesn't take much to make a small difference in a less fortunate kiddo's life so come on! There's just a little less than 3 WEEKS left to donate. It's for a really good cause and $5 or $10 really will help out a lot. There are a lot of cool toys you can get for kids of all ages with just a little bit of cash. And again, I know this holiday isn't about the toys but when you're a kid, it does give you a little something more to look forward to and be hopeful for. I know the economy is rough right now but it really doesn't take much to help out here. Every little bit helps so donate if you can! :)

Happy Tuesday!

Thank you for doing this every year! I just donated - it's not a lot but every little bit helps!

I think it is so great you do this- I find a way to give at least 5 every year. You make me feel like there is still hope for kindness in this world.
