    We all love transformers here, and I was thinking, since the economy is down, and there is a lot of kids out there that would love a transformer, when you go out on the "hunt" and find that rare transformer, that you already have why not buy that and give it to a needy kid via toy's for tot's or the salvation army, or other fine charitys. Or those chrismas tree's that have kid's wishes on it, pick one out that want's a transformer, and buy it?(That is if you can afford it), or those of us that are MISB people, why not make a sacrafice and give one away to a needy kid?

    My favorite charity and one that I've donated tens of thousands of dollars to over the past 20 years. No kid should go without a present at Christmas and these guys do a fantastic job of playing Santa.

    If you can, give a little gift to a kid in your area who may not have a very good year. You'll feel good about yourself and the kids will be very thankful.

    It's a great thing to do. Especially with all the $7 deluxe sales in both the US and Canada, even just 1 will help put a smile on a little ones face.

    I usually spend about $80 per year on Toys for Tot's. My wife and I have been donating to them for over 10 years. I buy a few My little Ponies and Transformers. It's been a bit tight this year, but I'm hoping to spend close to the same amount this year.

    T4T's gets most of my Christmas donations.
    Marines at the toy stores always get a small toy or 2, my commuter train takes a collection and they get bigger items, usually TF's as does my office collection. I love that there are the Activators and Bumpers out there for younger kids too.

    I'm not a MISB person.

    And while I'm hunting for that rare toy, I'll buy another that I loved, and give it away. Animated Lugnut is a great toy and every kid should have one.
