Dear Friend of Toys for Tots,
Each year, following our annual Christmas Drive, Toys for Tots receives many letters and messages filled with heartfelt appreciation just like the one above. And although these messages are not mailed or e-mailed directly to you, you must understand that they are truly because of you!
This past Christmas season, with your dedicated support, the Marine Corps was able to distribute 16 million toys to more than 7 million less fortunate children. Whether you signed up to be a Christmas Club member, donated online, dropped off a toy at a collection site or nudged family and friends to join you in giving to Toys for Tots, your work added up and gave children reasons to smile on Christmas morning!
And Toys for Tots simply couldn’t have made these smiles a reality without your kindness and compassionate giving. Thank you!
I hope you’re starting 2010 with a hopeful spirit, but please look back at 2009 at least on more time with a sense of accomplishment for the difference you made in child's life. At Toys for Tots, we’re
starting our year filled with gratitude for the generous support we
received from friends like you that made the 2009 Christmas Campaign a
my friend, when you made your New Year’s resolutions, I hope you included keeping / becoming a Toys for Tots Christmas Club member on your list of good works for 2010. You’ve made a difference this year and I’m looking forward to having you as a member of the Toys for Tots family in 2010.
Thank you, my friend, for your support and may you have a safe, healthy and joyous new year!
