Ok, I know I said I wouldn’t post as usual. But because its New Years Day and nothing is going on, I decided to post.
Anyways, I was entering contests and sweepstakes last night when I thought of something. I saw all these toys to win and a bright idea came to me. Me and Manders have been recipients of toys from Toys for Tots when we were little. So every year, even if we can’t afford it, we always donate a toy or two to TFT.
Well, I asked Manders if she would like to have a friendly race between the two of us. Through out the year, we plan on buying toys for TFT to donate. She agreed and this was the deal: We would have 2 boxes (1 for her and 1 for me) where we would put our toys. We would have a poster board with our names on either side with that little temperature thingy drawing like many drives have so we can see where each person is. The person who has the most toys the day we take to donate them would receive a small stocking stuffer.
We’re not doing this just to have a race but we’ve never been able to donate like we want so we figured this would be a great way to do it without wondering if we’re going to have enough money at Christmastime to even buy a gift!
