My husband and I both grew up in lower income families, which is why giving back is so important to us. We give year round, and we have two sponsored children overseas, but I always feel we should do more, especially at Christmas time. So this year I have decided that rather than donating 3 or 4 toys to Toys For Tots, I want to donate $600. That’s enough money to bring a gift to over 40 children, who will otherwise go without on Christmas morning.
I chose Toys For Tots for exactly 1 reason, I was that child, my siblings were that child. Had it not been for the wonderful generosity of so many there would have been a few Christmases without a gift under the tree.
I am raising the money through YouCaring as they don’t take a percentage, like so many other sites do. So please if you have $100, $20, $5, or even $1, please take a moment to donate. I can tell you from personal experience how amazing it is to wake up to something, when you were expecting nothing.
