Earlier this week, Bono wanted you to send a holiday card to President Obama. Now, Ellen is teaming up with Toys for Tots in your community, and asks that you drop off a new, unwrapped toy at your local Pier 1 store. We have a celebrity holiday charity bonanza on our hands.
Anyway, if you're out shopping for whatever the “it” toy is this year (I have a feeling it's a fake hamster, natch), please consider picking up something extra for a needy child. It’s for a great cause.
Here’s a list of a few things you cannot donate:
-Toys with a military theme or anything weapon-related (sorry, GI Joe)
-Toys with candy
-Used toys (toys must have tag)
-Toys containing chemicals
All of which is great, because it means you get to keep all of the really fund stuff - the highly caloric, artificial weaponry -- for yourself. The program runs through December 24.
