    :thumbs2: Christmas is a special time of year, and we need to remember the kids that don't get anything year round, much less at Christmas. So, the next time you hit the aisles of your favorite retailer to pick up a Transformer, pick one up for someone less fortunate than yourself as well.

    You may be the only Santa Claus that some child ever sees!

    Toys for Tots is a good donation organization that I usually donate to. :)

    I picked up a DOTM Voyager Shockwave for my toy donation.

    Awesome man. I'm using toys for tots as well, since it's the local organization.

    People (including myself, of course) should pick up a few pegwarmers *cough*Bumblebee*cough* to put in the bins. It helps both less-fortunate kids, and us collectors! Everybody wins!

    I'll be donating to an orphanage this year, probably not Transformers as they are hard to find and very expensive. We did polio vaccines one year and boy the kids loved it.

    This is awesome, my job sponsors Toys for Tots and every Christmas season, at the entrance of my job, they always setup a drop off box for toys, I sure will be picking up a couple of bees and roadbusters too.

    The original plan was to go buy a few shelfwarmers and drop them off, but it looks like we'll be stopping through TJMaxx and donating a few armfuls of PCCs, along with other various toys. More for less money means more gifts for the kids. I'm always glad that I have enough money that I can make at least one Toys for Tots donation.

    I've already put a couple DOTM deluxe figures and a couple Littlest Pet Shop three packs in the Toys for Tots bin but I'm sure I'll be putting something else in there eventually.

    No places for donating in the areas I've been too and my parents think it's a waste of money. It's kind of sad actually.

    I'm actually in charge of the toy drive for my job! We'll be doing new toys for Toys for Tots, gently used toys for a local charity and bikes. We usually have a pretty good turnout, but I'm hoping this year will be even better!

    Toys for Tots is the only charity I donate to and it's something I plan for throughout the year, picking up extra figures on clearance, with coupons, etc. When Hasbro had the $5-off DotM coupons out, I used a bunch of them to pick up about 20 Cyberverse Commanders to donate, plus 4 - 5 Cyberfire Bumblebee figures that I got for free when Target was allowing people to stack Hasbro's coupon with their mobile coupon. I'll also be donating the HftD/RtS Scouts I didn't want from a set I bought for Windcharger, some random RtS Deluxes and 4 TFA Skywarp figures I picked up on clearance. In total, I'll probably be donating about 30 - 40 figures this year.

    Back when the $5 off coupons were abundant and Target had a sale on cyberverse commanders, I cleared out a few pegs just to donate to Toys For Tots or whichever local chapter there is nearby. Also grabbed a couple of the Walmart exclusive Prime/Comettor and Bee/Soundwave/Rodimus packs as well. Sure I could have spent the money elsewhere, but meh... they are made for kids, after all.

    I usually try to donate a couple TFs to the Toys for Tots every year. I'll make sure to do it again this year after my mid-Decemer paycheck :)
