That’s exactly what’s happening all over the US right now. The local news are filled with toy drives and charity events of all kinds.
There are toy drives in stores, parks, institutions. Various clubs are also organizing toy drives and charity events. There are also lots of biker toy drives and a lot more.
All of them have the same goal – to raise awareness for the given local community’s children in need and to help out. People bring various toys, stuffed animals, clothes or donate cash.
All of this then goes to local emergency response teams, hospitals, institutions, schools, families in need. A lot of work goes into organizing these events, finding places and businesses which want to help and participate, making sure the people hear about the event and so on. Then more work is needed to get all of the toys and donations to the receivers.
So, people who organize these toy drives are unsung heroes. Most of them don’t really want to be “sung heroes”. They just want to help out. And that’s the true beauty. So, if you hear about a toy drive around your area, be sure to go and help out with a toy or two. It’s a small gesture, but it may make someone’s Christmas that much better.
