Christmas is around the corner. The stores have had their decorations up since September. And we all get caught up in the frenzy of Christmas. But its also the time of year when we step back and realize how lucky we truly are.
One of my favorite charities is Toys For Tots. It’s a great charity and you can read about them here. It’s a nice feeling to buying a toy for a child in need. It’s amazing how many cool toys you can find for under $10. So little goes so far.
Since I have a small, but growing readership, I thought I’d try something new. I joined Amazon’s affiliate program. For each referral that results in a sale, I receive 4% of that sale. I will use the money earned to purchase toys for children who wouldn’t otherwise have a Christmas. 4% may not seem like much, but with even a $25 purchase, $1 will go toward the purchase of a toy. If 10 people does this, a child will have something to open on Christmas morning.
So, if you are going to purchase anything through Amazon this year, please use the Amazon links on this page. Help make a child’s Christmas extra special this year. Spread the word to others too. The more who participate, the more toys we can buy.
Merry Christmas everybody!
OK. Here’s The Fine Print:
I will keep these links up until Dec. 23rd, 2007. All proceeds that result from these links will go toward purchasing toys for Toys for Tots. They will be donated at my local Toys For Tots drop-off. I am not affiliated with Toys for Tots. I’m just a guy who wants to make Christmas special for some deserving kids. I will keep everyone up to date on the progress of our little fund raiser. Cheers!
