Talking MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital Toy Drive @ Houston Coffee & Cars Dec. 1st!

Houston Performance Driving & Performance Driving Network is stepping up to the plate this holiday season and will be collecting toys for the kids @ MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital. We formally ask everyone* and anyone* that reads this forum to please get involved in this toy drive. These kids are fighting everyday to stay strong and focused while receiving their treatments. Some of these kids are not from Houston and have very little to no family here while at the hospital. These families have stretched their finances to the limits in getting their children the best medical care possible. More than anything these parents want to give them the best Christmas possible.

Note: If you can't make it out to Cars & Coffee, consider dropping in to one of the Saturday night Central Houston Meets. Koiracer & I will be collecting toys up until the event.

Any businesses want to get on board with this? If you can't go to C&C, I can see what we can work out about doing a pick up from you. Just contact the sponsor above to get your name on the shirt, get your 10+ toys together in a bags, staple your business card to the bag & one of us could come pick it up & take it to Cars and Coffee

Please note: we are still in the works of getting this more organized, but I am donating my red legacy wagon (gillman big meet 4 best legacy 2012 lol) to place your company's logo on my car. The logo will be as big as your donation. We plan to deliver at coffee and cars in the legacy done up to resemble Santa's sleigh to the best of our ability.

I also hope to have some reindeer Subarus to escort me in.
