Infinite Toys for Tots!

Well, the Holiday season is upon us, and Christmas is less than a month away. I love the Christmas season, mostly because I enjoy the feelings of goodwill and kindness towards others that the season generates. Most importantly, I love all the gifts I get!

Sadly, though, there are a lot of people out there who, for whatever reason,  won't  be getting any gifts this year. It would be hard for a grown man like me (derisive comments are expected,  speculating as to how mentally "grown" I am) to not receive the toys I crave at this time of year, but imagine how hard it is for kids to have nothing to look forward to?

Fortunately, there are people out there who want to make the Holidays happy for kids, and are out there doing something about it. The USMC has been running their "Toys for Tots" campaign for years, and have certainly brightened many a child's Holiday. Now the folks at my favorite Pop Culture site, "Infinite Hollywood", are upping the ante: For every toy donation you make to TFT, they will match it with a donation of their own. It's like giving TWO toys for the price of one! Saint Nick himself would be proud.

To participate, check out all the details here, and make a donation. Newton Gimmick, the overlord of "Infinite Hollywood", hopes for at least 30 donations by Christmas, but I'm sure we can do better than that. If you have a website of your own, why not post a link to this campaign on your site, too? Also, please give some quality toy, something you yourself would have liked to receive as a child. 

Yes,  that means NO Megablocks™!

What a great drawing. Is that Santa-Puss or Octo-Claus?

The library where I work does a canned food drive and a toy drive this time of the year, and it is always pretty successful. Even in these troubled times, folks are generous at Xmas. I just wish that Christmas spirit went year 'round.

Mykal- That adorable character is Octo Joe, the mascot of the Infinite Hollywood site.

I too wish that the Christmas Spirit extended past the Holiday Season. Perhaps I am guilty of not doing this myself. Never too late to fix that, though, as Ebeneezer Scrooge showed us...

Octo Joe, taking the world over one tentacle at a time. Great drawing Bill and of course, I appreciate the plug.
