Toys for tots

Gary --- Just out of curiosity.....do you remember the toy you received from the Marines lo those many years ago? (Could it have been an elephant??).

Or did your lifelong love of the Marine Corps and Toys for Tots grow because of the good feeling that you got from knowing that someone cared?

I don't,

remember what I received from Santa, but your last comment is what I do remember thinking...SOMEONE cares. And these Marines cared enough to take me to see Santa.......Payback was due, which I took care of years later.

Until you've been on that side of the fence you can't imagine what it does to a little kids brain. But all that can be change with something as simple as a hug, or a present from a stranger. Each of us has the ability to make a difference in someone elses life. The simple act of giving can mean the world to someone who has NOTHING.

One day I would like to see a video produced that would cover the receiving end of this program (Toys for Tots). The look on a childs face who KNOWS he/she will not have a Christmas will take you to your knees with tears when you see their faces of joy. Each of us has the power to generate that look of excitement, all you have to do is give.......

Semper Fi All, and Happy Holidays


Gary
