It’s December which means the holidays are actually here and there’s no more chance to hide from them. It also means those Toys for Tots bins have been showing up everywhere to accept donations! Just yesterday I dropped off my donation and you should too! If you need some incentive, Geeks for Tots is offering up an amazing prize for people who go above and beyond for donating.

There’s lots of kids out there that aren’t fortunate to receive gifts during the holiday season. That’s where Toys For Tots comes in. People donate toys to the organization and kids who otherwise wouldn’t have a fun holiday can get some kick butt presents. And to help encourage people to donate, we’re pleased to announce the Geeks for Tots contest where you can win lots of cool prizes just for donating to Toys for Tots!

Now how do you get a chance to win all this amazing stuff? It’s simple!

There are two ways to enter:

  1. You can take a picture of yourself donating to a Toys for Tots drop off box and send it in.
  2. Send proof of an online cash donation to the Toys For Tots website (they send an email receipt that can be forwarded).

Both entries should go to geeksfortots@gmail.com. Please include “Geeks for Tots Entry” in the subject line.

You can find drop off locations here or you can call your local Toys For Tots representative.

Now I realize that you might be shy, so if you do the picture thing you can blur out your face or wear a mask, we’re not picky. Entries must be received by 12/31/11 in order to qualify. Winners will be picked randomly by by an impartial third party judge.

We’d like to send a big thank you to our sponsors:
