Generally speaking, that's where good ideas come from. It always starts with someone asking "What if?" and then everyone else builds upon it.

Blacktop sent me some points so I am all in and sending everything to Robie. I was saving up for my very own CT.com skateboard that I wanted since I was 8. Being that I can go to the store today and buy 10 skateboards if I wanted to, I'm all for using my points for less fortunate kids.

Nice work guys. Like some have said this should be a yearly thing.

And when you see anyone post with points left make sure they know about this thread.

Re: Hey, I Got A Question...


Okay...
No reply as of yet from the email. I just tried to call their foundation headquarters and they are not open on Saturday. I would hope/think that this close to the Holidays, someone would be monitoring communications. We'll see.

I like to have back-up plans. So, just in case it turns out I have to order the toys and get them to a drop off point...I could use some help, since I don't have any kids.
If plan B goes into effect, what to buy? Should I just buy a lot of one thing for a boy and one thing for a girl or mix it up to an extent? If anyone wants to peruse Amazon and come up with some ideas...copy and paste the links in this thread.

What are kids playing with these days?

Also....if we do have to go with plan B, it would be great if we had another 2-3 locations where I could have the toys shipped from Amazon. That way, my little corner of the world isn't the only area benefiting from all the generosity.

If anyone wants to be a volunteer to have some toys delivered to their homes so they can drop them off at a TFT's location...please PM me and we'll exchange info. There are literally thousands of locations around, so it shouldn't involve a lot of driving hassle to get r done.

Just in case...

Thanks.

I was able to locate the local guy in charge. He's a retired Marine also. I sent him an email so we should hear something.
