Leatherneck Lifestyle: Toys for Tots
One of my all time favorite commercials and my ALL TIME favorite cause. When you see a box somewhere this Christmas season, you know what to do. Despite how many toys they receive each year, there is never enough to fill the requests. (NO TOYS THAT LOOK LIKE REALISTIC WEAPONS)Have a great weekend, Leathernecks. Be safe.Posted by Leatherneck Lifestyle on Saturday, November 18, 2017
