    That's a good idea, Kristie! I'll definately consider that. Trying to find time might be hard. I would gladly help organize this as long as I had some help. Any takers?

    PS. I understand people with limited funds, trust me I am one. And it's NEVER been my intention to use guilt to get people to donate. It's kind of like church in a way, you tithe what you can sort of thing.

    PSS. Special thanks to all of you who have been so generous in your giving. And if you can't donate, I challenge you to join us out there in costume or T-shirt in December when time comes to donate.

    I understand if I'm coming off pushy. I just have a great love for toys. I have since I was a kid. And it KILLS me every year when they show those on TV without much of anything. And when I see myself involved in a club like this with such unification, I can't help but get active. Thank you all!

    PSSS. I will always make it a point of posting cost effective toys when I see them in the store. I know you will do the same.

    Thanks Princess!

    My mom was kind enough to donate 6 board games to the cause! Now we're only 40 away from beating the August total!

    LP,

    This is a great cause. Down here in the TFF we are trying to get together an event and I think most likely we'll go for a Toys for Tots event. vadersdad is really enthusiastic about it. I'm even making a costume [face_shocked] to help host the event when we have it.

    This is one of my favorite things to do with my Christy. Explain to her that there are kids that may not get toys because their parents can't afford them or their parents are otherwise unavailable. She loves to participate!

    So push away, LP! It's for a great cause!

    Rock on, Jada! Keep me posted on what you guys are doing down there! Found some cool SW toys deals today and thought I'd post 'em. This is also in the Collector's Thread:

    'Stopped into KB at AZ Mills real quick and found that the 2.99 markdown is still going on with 3" figs and they have once again, marked their 4-Packs down to 7.49 or something like that.

    PS. I thought about what Kristie said recently and also about a PM I got from Lady Jedi. Another good way to collect those toys would be to tell your friends and co-workers about it. They could give them to you and you could bring 'em to the meeting. If you want more flyers to give them, let me know and I'll bring them next meeting.

    The reason why our own PFF drop off wouldn't really work is because we're not the ones collecting the toys for TFT. We're actually collecting the toys to be horded then dropped off to TOY ANXIETY in December at their drop off. I'd hate to have an un-official TFT drop off and then get some flack from TFT organization. Maybe next year the PFF can hold their own! Maybe even get Atomic Comics in on it! Food for thought.

    Just a reminder, I will have the PFF TFT collection bin at Void's party Saturday night if you wish to donate. It all goes to the September total (We're trying to beat 45! And we're well on our way at 7 right now!)! See you all there!

    YET ANOTHER KB PRICE DROP!

    At AZ MILLS all star wars figures are back to 1.99 each! Not a bad deal. The four packs are back to 10 bucks and the lightsabers are back to 19.99...

    HOWEVER! I did happen to wander my eyes over to the TWO for ONE bin and there were some really good priced Super Hero figures! Batman, Superman, etc. So two for the price of one ain't bad for the cause! :)

    Special Thanks to those who donated at the party! We've bumped September's total to 15. If we get 31 more donations at the September meeting, we'll beat August's total!

    Always check out the collector's thread and here for more cheep toy deals! Also, let us know if you find any!

    I will also collect $3 donations at the meeting for star wars toys at KB Toys. Myself and Sand_Dancer will go over after the meeting and count the toys we buy towards that month's total!

    Yet another shameless bump! :)

    PS. Gang, don't forget to mention to your friends, family, and co-workers about our involvement with this! Outside PFF donations are gladly accepted as long as they follow the guidelines listed at the top of the thread!

    Also, in light of "telling your friends and family" about this project, I will have more of those REMINDER Flyers at the meeting Saturday to those who want more or didn't get one last month. I'll update at the meeting as things progress! :D

    Saw some great toy deals tonight at AZ Mills Kay Bee Toys!

    * All Star Wars figures are still only 1.99!
    * The 2 for 1 bin has some great low priced super-hero action figures as low as 99 cents!
    * There's a large BARBIE bin there with all their barbies marked down to 3.99!

    NOW is a great time to buy from KB for TFT during the holiday off season!
