Toys for Tots 2011

I'm still alive and kicking. Still sorting everything out. We still haven't found a house. The house we were once interested in is still for sale and we could easily buy it. But now is the question if we still want to buy. Still love the house, but it's at least 20 min from friends and family (only 10 from work which is a big plus). I know for some people that's nothing. But I live not even a 10 min walk from a couple of friends or 5 min drive to other friends. And when you live closer together people drop by more easily.

Work is also going great. Got 1 new colleague and finally a store manager, both are great. Have to adjust, because there's a whole new way of working. My contract ends half December, keeping my fingers crossed that it'll be renewed.

I know I was going to these updates closer together but I'm still sorting everything out but had to come her and post about Toys for Tots 2011.

Ashly Star over at Not your average chick is doing another Toys for Tots. She'll raise money so she can buy some Toys for Tots.

Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity is the fund raising, funding and support organization for the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The Foundation was created at the behest of the U. S. Marine Corps and provides support in accordance with a Memorandum of Understanding with the Commander, Marine Forces Reserve, who directs the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The Foundation has supported Toys for Tots since 1991.

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

So go to her site and donate.
