There are a zillion causes worth contributing to this holiday season and the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program is one of them. This year, Huffy will donate $15,000 to the Toys for Tots program when they reach 40,000 Facebook fans. They still have a lot of ‘Likes’ to go and really need your support. I mean really y’all…you simply click “like” and you’re doing your part for the cause. It doesn’t get much easier or cheaper than that.
When I got the email asking me to share this, it brought up a memory. I have pictures of my brother teaching me how to ride and I was older, 7 almost 8, and it was the only bike I ever owned. It got stolen soon after. I was sad of course but I’m more sad now when I think about it because my Mom worked so hard to be able to afford that bike for me. :( I talked to my Mom earlier about it and she said she remembers us not being able to afford to get my flat fixed and how Kathy our neighbor, who is now my AUNT KATHY, would fix it for me since we didn’t have the money. OMG, these memories are making me sad. GAH! I happen to find a photo of me and Jeremy on my Black and Gold BMX Huffy Bike!!!! I was 7, almost 8!
So this is why I’m writing about it. We were fairly poor. I was one of those kids who had the necessities but not much else and was completely thrilled to get something. I know how valuable the Toys for Tots program is and how awesome it is for Huffy to donate the money. So I’m asking you to ‘Like’ and share with others for the cause. They….I would appreciate it.
