Feck Off, Squirrels...

I saved up some change in an ice cream pail this year and cashed it in at the bank Friday. I decided to take what turned out to be a pretty respectable wad of cash and crash the local discount retailer to buy new toys for the TFT program.
I ended up buying about 45 new single carded peg warmers and deposited them in the TFT container in the store. This afternoon I learned that the pegs were restocked with all new figs from more recent waves.
I'm just saying...felt pretty good to make the donation and getting some newer stuff into the sights of the local gentry was kind of a nice surprise, too.
Times are tough all over, I know, but I hope everyone who reads this at least thinks about making a TFT donation this season. Every kid should receive a gift, no matter what it is, this Christmas.
Have a good weekend, everyone.

Gave about $400 to the Forgotten Children Toy Drive my department participates in.
And I hate walking past the Salvation Army bell ringers without dropping anything, so that's all my change and loose singles.
Christmas is kicking my ass and I haven't even bought presents yet. And on my $700 a month salary, it's only going to get worse.
Here's to crippling credit card debt!
I see what you did there.

That is so great.
Ok, guy, you generous guys... I am running a toy drive over at The TerrorDrome.
We are using data collection software to get all of the Joe community's generosity displayed in one place.
We are doing this for a few reasons. One so so that we can stand back at the end and say "wow, we did a lot of good!"
Also, I think seeing a giant list of people who actually HAVE donated will get even MORE people to donate.
So, those of you who have laredy given, or plan to, please follow this link....
The Terror Drome | Daily G.I. Joe News and Discussions Operation Snakebite: Capture All Joes!
And in the form select the "give locally" button.
You can comment anonymously or not. You don't need to sign up for the terrordrome to take part in it. Just imagine how impressive it would be if all of our various donation could be seen all at once.
