A while back I attended a live stream from New York City called the Activision’s Family Game Summit.  It was a very good event and I even got some stuff from Activision.  If you want to read that post click on the link below!

Since we are in the Christmas season I decided to donate the toys I got to Toys for Tots.  Toys for Tots is run by the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.  I went down to Sunny King Toyota to donate the toys Activision gave to me for free.  I thought this was a very nice gesture since so many people in the Anniston/Oxford area are going through unemployment.  When I got there the dealership’s owner Vernon Thomas dressed up as Santa Claus!  You can call him Santa V!  Toys for Tots was also able to raise over 80,000 toys with the help of ABC 33/40 which is a huge accomplishment!  Enjoy the pictures!
