The U.S. Marines - the team we've all counted on to save the day!
"My family and I would just like to thank you all for everything you did to help make my daughters' Christmas better for them. I have two girls, ages 2 and 4. They are both receiving gifts from your foundation and they are going to absolutely love them. I just wanted you all to know that there are people that are grateful for all that you do for their children. Merry Christmas to all of you. Sincerely yours,

Did you know the Toys for Tots team includes all these people?
You , First Lady Michelle Obama, actor Dennis Quaid, NBA star Shaquille O'Neal, and Paul Teutul Sr. of Orange County Choppers.
Yes, as a Marine Corps Toys for Tots supporter, you're part of a pretty special group of people. And with all of us working together, Marines were able to distribute 16.4 million toys to 7.4 million less fortunate children for Christmas in 2009.
Because your last gift made such a big difference, my friend, I want to thank you for your extraordinary support as a part of the TFT Team! We need friends like you to ensure children in need feel loved on Christmas morning and long after.

Read on about Dennis Quaid and Tammy Lenhart and their commitment to ensuring no child is forgotten - and read about parents in Pascagoula, MS whose children benefitted from your incredible generosity!
