Every year, Sue and I start promoting the acquistion of toys to be picked up at the club for the Toys for Tots program of the Marine Corps Reserve. Every child deserves a smile on their face at holiday time and it is never too early to begin. In the past we've built 1 or 2 Build-A-Bear Workshop animals each week, which you may wish to do, and this year are working on direct contributions to local charities such as CASA or the Childrens' Shelter Home. This effort to give back to the community that has shown us so much love fills my heart with joy and my life with a small sense of accomplishment. If you wish to contribute to Toys for Tots, see your local business that has the Toys for Tots logo sign displayed prominently. New, wrapped toys or bicycles are always needed. Direct contributions to your local United Way, Citizens Against Spouse Abuse, Childrens' Shelter Home, Habitat for Humanity, or similar charitable contributions are tax deductible and greatly appreciated by the recipients.
