Bring Joy

Toys for Tots an easy way to bring Christmas cheer

Alicia Solis, Reporter

As we are approaching the Christmas season, people are getting excited to celebrate with presents and a nice, long vacation. We’re ready to see our family, go out or stay home to enjoy big dinners, receive gifts, complete annual traditions, and generally be merry. But sometimes we forget that this is also a time for giving.

During this season people, should be more willing to give to the less fortunate people of the world. One of my favorite ways to do that is through Toys for Tots. The Toys For Tots Marine Corps foundation’s mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December each year, and to distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children throughout the community.

You can give as much as you can afford/want, and you will help bring the joy to less fortunate children. All children deserve to experience the joy of Christmas. If people in all different communities participate in this giving foundation’s mission then we can help bring the Christmas joy to all sorts of children. This can also help unite people and really spread Christmas joy not just for the less fortunate, but for those giving.

Don’t be a Scrooge during this giving time, give to those less fortunate and to those who forgot about Christmas joy.
