“We Can Do No Great Things, Only Small Things With Great Love” ~ Mother Theresa

For the last five years, we’ve been supporting The Marine Toys For Tots Foundation by way of annual Toy Drives.

Even though I didn’t know it then, I now know how much my parents sacrificed for us kids to be happy and always feel wonderful, loved, and hopeful. I can’t remember a day when I felt I went without something I needed. As an adult, I’ve come to realize that when we had nothing, others helped us. Thanks to organizations like Toys for Tots, my brothers and I had gifts to open on Christmas. I see no other way to make sure kids feel the way I did growing up, than to make whatever efforts I can to make sure they too can laugh and smile how I did (and still do!), to be an advocate and help fund raise with the US Marine Corps every year. My annual campaigns are called “Giggle & Mingle” stay tuned for details every fall! Check out our past efforts in our 2009 & 2010 galleries as well as our 2010 Giggle & Mingle video recap!
