This is upsetting. I recently gave to Toys for Tots at my local Starbucks. The bin was empty!

How many parents out there over spend on their kids? I know I do... Why can't you give 1 toy away to someone who has nothing?

Geez... go to Walgreens. They have toys 3 for $11. The kids would love to be able to open a gift on Christmas. Come on!

My children got a bad case of the gimme's a couple of years ago. Since then we go as a family and each of us pick a toy for a less fortunate child.

Gas. That's where toys for tots went. Sorry! Some parents actually have to consider what's really important.

Oh. Putting gas in your tank is really important, but needy children are not? Please.

How many times have you carpooled? Taken the bus, marta, etc? How many times did you wait (burning that gas) in line at a drive thru? How many times did you go to the store, passing a toys for tots drop off?

Get over yourself.
