Tis The Season for Donating to Toys For Tots!

toy-news-and-talkI would have to say that many of us in the toy collecting community are pretty fortunate for what we have. Including the people we interact with on a daily basis. But this time of the year we are often reminded of the fact there are many that are not so lucky. That includes children. And what better way for a bunch of grown men and women that collect toys to share in their interest and give to the kids. One great cause is, Toys for Tots. Each year they collect toys and get them into the hands of children that are less fortunate.

Now, what if you could get a little something for donating? Either a prize or matching donation. Would that maybe entice you a little more? Well two great reasons are here! Geeks for Tots and Infinite Toys for Tots aims to help out and put some prizes in your hands, or match your donation at the same time. All you need to do is take a picture of yourself donating a toy in a Toys for Tots bin and email it to them. Easy peasy.


Both of these wonderful initiatives are put on by some great guys in the toy collecting community and could use your help. Even if you don’t want anything for donating, you can still help spread the word. So next time you are at Toys R Us (or another local retailer), think about buying a little something extra for a child this holiday season. You might just make him, or her, the happiest kid around!
