2019 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots


2019 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots-christmas.jpg

It all started On December 19, 2014 when contractors, on a sister site, asked a simple question about finding a way to turn points into toys for children resulted in contractors coming together in a mad dash to make a difference. That Christmas the ContractorTalk.com community came together to donate $1,500 for the kids through Marine Toys For Tots!

This year, once again, ContractorTalk, ElectricianTalk, PaintTalk, and DIYChatroom will be joining together to make a difference for the kids. Hope currently has 610 rewards points.

We are getting a late start this year so we need to get busy donating to Hope as quickly as possible if we are going to get this done!

What is our goal for this year?

If you would like to donate your reward points to Hope for the Marine Toys For Tots program, simply click on the Rewards tab in the navigation bar at the top of the site and then select the "donate" link. For the username, enter: Hope

2000 points = $20

Count me in.

I tried to click the announcement at the top, but got booted, so I started a note in the open area.

The kids need the toys more than I need the points, for things at the hardware store gift card.

All readers, why don't you give your points up for the kids, instead of hoarding them?

I realize that most of you do already, but every year, I see thousands "roll over", in a few accounts, and just keep building, and building.

Put them to good use, don't let them be wasted, if you never return, due to some unforeseen occurrence in your life.

Re: 2019 Drive: Marine Toys For Tots


IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Hey y'all there are some pending changes in upper management right now. Because of this, we need to push up the deadline for Toys For Tots (Hope) donations. So this year the deadline is midnight November 14th. I will be collecting final numbers early Friday morning on the 15th. This is a one off this year and should be back to normal next year. Thanks
