Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘toys for tots

“The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.”

For this I wish to acknowledge and say THANK YOU to Deb Sullivan, a local Real Estate Agent for RE/Max 1st Choice, who for the last 13 years has set up mobile Drop Off Sites for Toys for Tots in the Middletown, Odessa and Townsend communities. Every year Deb or one of her agents uses their personal vehicles to serve as a drop off site in over 20 communities. The signs are posted in advance with the scheduled date and time and it has become a tradition that I and many others look forward to each year. Once I missed our scheduled date but was able to drive to another community the next day with the donation. These mobile drop off sites are an easy and convenient way to put a smile on a child’s face on Christmas morning.

Although there has been a decrease in the number of people donating those who do are giving more which is such a blessing. Toys and gifts for kids ages 3-8, are in high demand because that is the age group which mostly still believe in Santa and don’t quite understand hardships. My sons are older and I no longer have to buy toys for them so it’s fun to shop and donate in their honor.

I found this great article on a large donation from Mrs. Obama and members of the White House staff – http://praisecleveland.com/1413359/first-lady-michelle-obama-drops-off-900-gifts-for-annual-toys-for-tots-drive/?omcamp=es-wppz-nl

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

 Today’s titled post; “Broken Boot Heel” makes me wonder why I bought these boots in the first place.  I like the color but am no longer excited about them nor do I think they are cute.  Perhaps if I had  worn them with long pants or a maxi skirt?  Hmm…well, I’m wearing them today but will probably donate to Goodwill before the end of the season.

 What do think?
