This is a discussion on Christmas Toy Drive within the News and Announcements forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; Donated... you guys are slow, pick up the pace a bit!!!...
Now that Thanksgiving is officially over we need to get our asses in gear and show some holiday spirit!
Have fun shoppin. I know its not a lot but $25 will get a few hot wheels!
Stage II and loving it!
Just a reminder that Monday night is the end of the toy drive. Great job guys!
I just added what I could... for now... Does it End Monday Day..during the day or that night???
Thanks for all of those who contributed. We didn't meet our goal of $1000 but I'lll put in $50 which will still make a lot of chilren extremely happy over the holidays.
On the side note, if you guys can refer any vendors or manufacturers to sign up between now and December 23rd I will donate 20% of all the proceeds to gifts for kids and possibly use parts of it to make some server upgrades which will speed up the site, which will be sort of like a gift for everyone on the site Basically if you know of any vendors or manfacturers who offers products or services to WRX users, just tell them about the toy drive and to contact email@example.com, and mention the toy drive and also the name of the member who contributed (including login name), perhaps I can create something that shows that you're a contributing member in your profile.
I'm going to go shopping today and I'll try to keep you guys posted on what I bought
Whoo~! I got about $300 worth of toys this afternoon. I'll post some pictures when I get a chance. The donations are still open and you can still send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm thinking about either dropping them off at the fire department or a local county children's hospital.
Sorry for posting this so late, here are some of the pictures of the toys that I got. I ended up donating it to the Children's Hospital of Orange County.
Here's what I was able to get with $350 ($220 from the toy drive and $130 from me). My focus was to get a good balance betwen teh quantity and the quality of the toys so most of the toys were between $5-13 with the exception of the hot wheels, which were a buck each. Next year I will probably bring a girl with me to d some shopping so we can get a more balanced list of gifts.
4 Robosapien V2 robots
2 Robosapien Raptors
20 Hot Wheels
4 RC cars
Thanks Stuff came up around early december so I couldn't really focus on the toy drive as much as I'd liked to. Next year we'll definitely be more organized and have a better turnout. Thank you all who have participated in the toy drive this year, you guys have really brought a lot of joy to the less fortunate kids in the hospital.
