I know I am already asking a bit of you, my readers, with my ongoing Soldiers’ Angels fundraiser, but this is the season of giving after all, and, personally, one of my favorite charities is Toys For Tots. If you can give at all, every dollar helps, but we typically have found that doing our own shopping at discount stores and sales nets us amazing results; for example, this pile cost us a bit less than $50:
And with that small expenditure, I am fairly certain that 15 kids’ Christmases will be a little brighter. Drop-off locations have gotten crazy-prevalent these days, with even gas stations and apartment complexes getting in on the party, and, as always, they are happy to take your credit card over the intertubes. If you want your toys to make it to kids this year, though, get your new, unwrapped toys to a drop-off soon!
The Marines do good work all over the world, and some of the best is right here, in our own back yards.
