A time for giving...

Posted 12-08-2010 at 11:25 AM by Loki
As the end of another year approaches, I'm again reminded of how lucky I am to have good friends, most of my family alive and kickin', a roof over my head, food that I need to eat, and crap I can play with/do when I'm bored. Many others can't say the same.

Many people this holiday season will go hungry, out in the cold, with little concern of being bored. Kids will go without toys, and so on and so forth.

Nobody on these forums can say that they are poor enough that they cannot donate a GI Joe to Toys for Tots, or are too busy to volunteer. Everyone can do SOMETHING.

I urge all of you do to at least something to give to other less fortunate than themselves, whether it be volunteering or donating to charities.

If and when you decide to donate your time and/or toys, post a message here, and I'll see if I can't get something special for you in return.

    In addition to this, Operation Christmas Child is also a great way to give back, I do not know if toys for tots and Op Christmas Child are related.

    The best way to touch the lives of children WOULD be through an FTS minivent.

    I just sold my "mystery airsoft box's." Every dime is going to make sure a few kids have a nice Christmas.

    This year my family and myself decided to give back. We went down to West Virginia/Kentucky border with our Church and brought this town a semi load of food and gifts and clothes. Just seeing the families and their faces when they got food, clothes, blankets. What really got me was the kids, seeing their faces light up when they got to pick up their present. I'm just really thankful that I could participate and give something back to the people who have barely nothing.
