Default Ryo1549's Secret Santa for Toys for Tots!

Well it's that time again. Secret Santa time! I have run this on several sites over the years and decided since this is where I am most active that i'd try it here. I have run this for 3 to 4 years now and I have enjoyed it every time and we get to help out the kids.

The requirements:

1 $10 unopened toy or $15 gift card or paypal (any paypal that I get will go directly to buying a toy)
1 $50 or more sealed box of cards from blowout
1 $50 SV item of the person's favorite players or team (this can be a card, helmet or whatever you'd like the other person to have)
1 Misc Item from the person's favorite player or team
You must have at least 20 feedback on this site or get special permission by me (if you have participated before on other boards)

THIS IS THE BARE MINIMUM.

Over the years I have seen some of the most generous people out there. I have seen auto'd jerseys being sent, auto'd mini helmets, auto helmets etc. This is NOT required but it does make it fun.

I will be taking signups until mid October so there is plenty of time for questions. After signups have completed, I will then get everyone's information. After everyone's information is received I will set up victims. I have gotten the OK from the guys at blowout to post this as well. Need at least 10 people to do this.

I'm in! Has been a great group since the days of Beckett long ago. I like Blowout as the new home, why not?

Thanks Nate

One thing I try to do is to take a picture of every toy that I get and make an album, then I'll take pictures of the donation etc.

This was the drop off I did last year (also before I lost 50 lbs lol)
We filled up that whole green box and then some.

Yeah it's a little bit on the high end side, this is why I have the strict requirements to weed out the dillholes.

Ryo is legit and if anyone has any concerns, he's a great guy and we actually met up a few times.

He gets my stamp of approval if that means anything around these parts.

OK bear with me as I went to Boston Public Schools so I am a little slow.

#1. Goes to Toys for Tots
#2, 3 & 4 go to the person you are matched up with

If my thinking is correct I will join.

I believe that was for another SS, but I have done videos in the past opening my package and will probably do one this year.

Since there will only be 10 people in this one, I'd "strongly encourage" it to be done...
