I was going to write this as a press release and all that....but I figured, we're all friends here.
We over at The TerrorDrome are really proud to announce our toy drive. It is our attempt to get a whole bunch of toys donated to Toys For Tots.
We are not COLLECTING your toys, we are just collecting your pledges to donate and making it easy for you to do so. We are doing this instead of just saying "hey go donate" because I think that when people see how generous their fellow Joe fans are being, it will encourage even more generosity.
Heard enough, ready to donate?
Visit: The Terror Drome | Daily G.I. Joe News and Discussions Operation Snakebite: Capture All Joes!
and follow the directions.
The information that we ask of you is strictly for this toy drive. Again, nothing draws a crowd like a crowd. You do not have to sign up on the TerrorDrome to get involved, though we would love it if stopped by our forum and shared how good it makes you feel to donate.
This is what the G.I.Joe community should be doing! We have the toys, we have connections at toy stores. It feels great knowing we are not only making Christmas better...but making it better with the coolest toys ever! And what a great way to clear out some peg warmers. Sure, you hate seeing Wild Bill....but he could just make some kid's holiday.
On top of that, what a great way to have some fun with inter-site rivalry! Who can donate the most? Win or lose...you win.
We've set up three easy ways to help out...they are on the site, you'll see them.
If you like this idea, say so!
And then donate, and tell people about that, too! Don't be modest. Spread the word. The more visible the donations are, the more others will be inspired.
Tell the other sites you frequent. Tell other tankers. Tell anyone you see!
I have already earmarked a commando Snake Eyes to go to some lucky kid.
How about you?
Ask any questions right here or over at the 'Drome.
Thanks HT mods and all tankers.

I was just at Target..where I picked up a Pilot Scarlet and a Croc Master for myself...and I grabbed a Snake Eyes vs Storm Shadow to donate.
Think how cool it will be for the kid who gets that. A good guy, a bad guy, and a comic book. You can't beat that!
I mean you. YOU . Reading this right now. You can not possibly donate something better than that. You can not even come close to brightening a holiday as much as I just have.
You could try. You could do your best and try......but I don't know if it would be worth it.

That is awesome.
All we are asking for in Snakebite is a PLEDGE to donate something. So if you are planning on donating anyway...go ahead and use our "donation form" so that we keep a running total of just how generous this community is.
I know people are suspicious of "collecting information" so I assure you that the ony purpose of this info is to show it off to encourage MORE generosity.
Oh and when you finish the quick form, you can help yourself to one of these "I donated" banners. It is our version of the "I gave blood" buttons you see. Because, let's be honest here.....what is more precious to us: blood or Joes?
