Another year over and another Infinite Toys For Tots in the record books. Although we didn’t get as many donations this year, reaching only 25 single donations, we did get a lot of great stuff donated. In fact, we actually got much more quantity donated through the donations than in year’s past. So I’ll go ahead and say we more or less reached our goal. I found that folks were much more generous this year in both their actual toy and monetary donations (as some people sent money directly to Toys For Tots in lieu of a physical donation) and I couldn’t be happier. Here’s a little menagerie of kindness, with photos from people who were willing to let me use their photos.
December was a rough month for me, so I was glad that so many were able to step up and donate this year. It gave me great pleasure, hectic as it can be at times, to go out and match donations from the great readers of Infinite Hollywood. Truly, you guys are the best. Sometimes you wonder if anyone is even hearing your pleas or reading your posts, but when you see people respond to your call to action and do some good by helping make less fortunate children have a better Christmas, it warms the cockles of my heart. Perhaps it warmed even the sub-cockle area, maybe in the liver… Maybe in the kidneys, maybe even in the colon, we don’t know.
All joking aside, you guys are absolutely incredible and you’ve made Infinite Toys For Tots a huge success yet again. With your 25 donations, I donated a matching 25 donations for a total of 50 donations to Toys For Tots. Our third year doing this drive was full of great people helping out and I am already looking forward to doing more of this in the future. Thanks again everyone!
Excuse the watermarks, but I wanted to make sure these photos weren’t misappropriated.
