2018 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots
 
1 Attachment(s)
Attachment 465762

It all started On December 19, 2014 when a simple question about finding a way to turn points into toys for children resulted in contractors coming together in a mad dash to make a difference. That Christmas our community came together to donate $1,500 for the kids through Marine Toys For Tots!

In 2017, even with the distractions all of us faced, including a hurricane or two in the mix we were able to make a nice donation.

The total reward points donated, including our sister sites were as follows.

ContractorTalk.com 165,971
DIYChatroom.com 102,196
ElectricianTalk.com 34,002
PaintTalk.com 32,592

Total Points 334,761

5000 points = $50
Making our total donation last year: $3,347.61

This year, once again, ContractorTalk, ElectricianTalk, PaintTalk, and DIYChatroom will be joining together to make a difference for the kids. Hope currently has 3,527 rewards points.

If you would like to donate your reward points to Hope for the Marine Toys For Tots program, simply click on the Rewards tab in the navigation bar at the top of the site and then select the "donate" link. For the username, enter: Hope

2000 points = $20

What is our goal for this year?

Robie, once again, if you could reach out to your contact to get information regarding the deadline for this year, that would be great!

When donating, do NOT use commas. If you are donating 1,500 points, it should be entered as 1500 without the comma.
