2018 Toys for Tots Holiday Drive Update!
Wanted to make sure I got back around to do the big update here! I cannot begin to tell everyone how amazing it felt to be able to drop off these yo-yos off for donation. The yo-yo community came in on our Toys for Tots drive in a BIG way! In total we had 96 donations to the toys for tots drive!
Meaning in total we donated an astounding 384 yo-yos!!!
We split the donation between ourselves in Massachusetts (we dropped off at two different locations hoping to spread the love a bit), and then YoYoFactory donated their half at a local drop site in Arizona! And we also sent a contingent out to New York State where someone local there made a big Toys for Tots Drive.
We are thinking for next year it might be fun to organize a little more in advance and have some different people offer different locations. We will see!
Public Donations were made by the following awesome individuals:
- Leslie Hurley
- Brian Kearley
- Zac Carlin
- Jeff Atwood
- Daniel Lohin
- Raymond Reese
- Bryan Fiege
- John Cooper
- Andrew Rae-Bayer
- Michael Cady
- Preston Werner
- James Honaker
- Jon Timmer
Thank you again for everyone who donated (both publicly and privately). I hope we showed a few kids the joy of what you can do with a modern yo-yo. You never know when you might just have created that future world champion!
