For the past 5 years I have had a toy drive for foster kids in NC. The annual tradition started because I was thinking about how I could a make difference, how I could show someone in need that someone was thinking of them, how I could give someone special a little surprise. I have numerous friends that are foster parents and have seen first hand how amazing it can be to help a child that has come from a distressed environment. The first year I raised about $150 in toys, the following year $250, and so on and so forth until last year I raised almost $700 in toys and gift cards!
I donate to a local North Carolina based organizations that help children in foster homes in NC. The toys are for the little ones and the gift cards are for teenagers (so they can buy clothes, music or whatever their melodramatic asses want).
This year I will be donating to Friends of Wake Guardian Ad Litem Program, a local Raleigh non-profit whose mission is “to enhance the lives of at-risk children and their caregivers through programs which promote their physical, educational, and emotional well-being, and to provide support for the Wake County GAL program.”
For the entire month of November and the first half of December (until December 15th) I will discount the amount of the toy or gift card (with receipt) off the cost of your tattoo (maximum $20 per person). If you don’t have an appointment during this time, you can still donate and I will give you a gift certificate for the amount to use later ($20 max per person).
Don’t have time to buy a gift or gift card but still want to donate? That’s cool, buy a shirt or hoodie! We will donate 5% of all apparel sales during November & the first half of December too!
***Please bring the receipts so we know the amount.****
Happy Holidays and I look forward to breaking the donation record this year!!!
