Re: 2018 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots


Young Lady, just like last year you have my permission (in writing , no less) to take all that I have accumulated this year 6218 at this posting, if I miss the deadline, due to some unforeseen event.

Like the recent fiasco with the system forgetting my log in password, then sending out badurl links to change the password.

Or I have an unwanted event like a sudden death .

To add all of my points to the kitty, and know that that is what I want to do with them.

It warms my soul to help out the Marines, to cheer a little tyke with the thought that someone loves them.

Re: 2018 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots


Since the deadline for us to donate for Toys For Tots is December 5th, I will need to end this on December 3rd so that we have time to add everything up and get our donation processed.

Make sure to make your donation BEFORE December 3rd.

Re: 2018 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots


I just added 6390 points to the coffers.

That makes 6508 from me to the Children, plus the matching from the administration.

Should buy some great stuff.

Now to build some more for next years kitty.

Re: 2018 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots


Just sent my small stash off to 'hope'.

@Cricket - Is there a way to view or scroll the various potential 'good cause' donation recipients (or perhaps this is the only one). It certainly sounds like a just and good cause but I would be interested to see the others. Tnx

Re: 2018 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots


For those asking.

How do I donate points?
From the full site, you click on rewards". Then you click on "donate". The username you would donate to is Hope.

Just enter Hope as the username.

Don't enter commas with the amount.

As an example, if you wanted to donate 1,000 points you would enter 1000

Re: 2018 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots


I have reached out to a few others, that have tens of thousands in their bank, asking them to donate also.

Have not heard an answer from any of them, so maybe some other donors want to ask them also?

You will see anyone's points, right there on any of their posts.

I accumulated 6500 points last year, and have 200+ already for next time.

By the count, it does look fruitless that this group might get the top scorer this year, but giving to the tykes, is score enough for me.
