Default Our 2017 Marine Toys For Tots Donation

I could not be more proud of y'all for coming together to make this happen so that we can help make it possible for some kids to have a better Christmas this year.

Even with the distractions all of us have faced this year, including a hurricane or two in the mix, we were able to make a nice donation.

The total reward points donated are as follows.

ContractorTalk.com 165,971
DIYChatroom.com 102,196
ElectricianTalk.com 34,002
PaintTalk.com 32,592

Total Points 334,761

5000 points = $50
Making our total donation this year: $3,347.61

You can still go to your local organization to donate to the kids, but the donation deadline for us was December 5th. Any points donate to Hope now will go to 2018.

Did we get that memo? Most likely yes, but a heads up would have been nice. No big deal, I will just save up big time for next year

I don't think the local organization would appreciate our "points"
