For our 5th year we will be collecting donations and split the money 50/50 between the Toys for Kids program and the Global Medical Relief Fund.

We are taking donations via:
Paypal: bvogelb5@yahoo.com - William Vogel (me)
Please be sure to send via I'm sending money to family or friends for no fees to either of us

EDIT:
We are now ready to accept Pokerstars and Skrill transfers, Paypal is still available also.

PokerStars =
$-Twackle-$ (Netherlands)

Skrill = (In spoiler tags to avoid forum bots bothering him)
Spoiler:


Here are some pictures from the previous years:$5,000 raised in 2013; over $3,000 in 2012






This years plan~
1) We all donate money with the deadline being Dec 7th
2) I've worked out the same amazing 35% discount as last year
3)I purchase all the toys and take tons of pictures
4)There will be an event at the Convention Center on Dec 13th. About 1,000 kids will be invited. There will be games and food and each child will be able to select a toy or two for themselves. (I will take plenty of pictures)
5)On Dec 14th we will go to and donate toys to children in nearby hospitals
6)For the rest of the month we will continue to accept donations for the GMRF.

Why donate through us?
Feel free to do a donation yourself, but I have again worked out an amazing discount and a private shopping time during closed store hours. Going through us will stretch the dollar a little more and result in more toys to be donated.

I can get maybe 13 toys with even $10, any size donation is appreciated.

Thank you again to 2+2 for allowing us to run this. Please try to do most "spamming" via Twitter and Skype.

Retail, but they have a huge sale once a year and on that day before opening to the public they let me shop. I end up getting the big sale and an additional 35% discount.
I wasn't able to get approval on wholesale from any store.

My friend posted us over on another popular forum. Probably some cross over audience, but worth a shot to reach more people. Thanks Yuri.

Re: **TOYS FOR KIDS DONATION THREAD**5th ANNUAL

Are you organizing the event with 1000 kids invited? Or is this an event that your participating in but not organizing?

I ask because if your just planning on inviting a bunch of kids then there must be a myriad of health and safety regulations etc you would have to meet?

Can you PM me some more in depth details and I will see if I can get an article on the FTP Blog for you.

I'm only involved b/c of our donations and being willing to help out. They are emailing me a copy of the flier in a few minutes and I'll throw it in here.

Re: **TOYS FOR KIDS DONATION THREAD**5th ANNUAL

We have $250 from the volume pools en route to slugant.

I couldn't collect it as stars have messed up uk transfers.

Thanks for running again billy.

Re: **TOYS FOR KIDS DONATION THREAD**5th ANNUAL

Unfortunately, Real Money Transfers between UK and EU licences are currently not available due to a technical issue. You will therefore not be able to transfer and receive funds to or from any .UK accounts.*

We can confirm that the issue has been reported to our Programming Team. While we are currently unable to provide a time frame for a resolution of this issue, we are aware how important it is for this to be corrected so we are working with haste to get it fixed as soon as possible.

...
So uk people please use skrill or paypal in the meantime

Re: **TOYS FOR KIDS DONATION THREAD**5th ANNUAL

The paypal goes to stungem
The skrill and stars goes to me and i will keep an updated list of contributions so everyone can check

Any fees i lose on my end will be covered by me so that if u donate you can be sure of it that 100% reaches the destination

Btw i have slightly less loss on stars compared to skrill so if people are doubting please choose stars
