TL; DR: Emergency toy drive for Boston-local charity.

Some of you know that I work for Tony Davis, the owner of the Million Year Picnic comic shop and those of you who are customers may have even met his lovely wife April and their charming son. What you may not know is that April works for Span, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit, tax-exempt corporation based in Boston dedicated to assisting people who have been in prison to address the issues that brought them to prison. ( )

This year, they just found out that another organization failed to step up and provide Span with the toys they promised for the kids of participants in the program for Christmas.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t handle letting kids go without toys for Christmas.

We are therefore setting up an emergency 4-day toy drive. It ends at 9pm THIS Sunday, 12/20/2015. Bring your new or gently used unwrapped toy to the Million Year Picnic at 99 MT Auburn ST in Cambridge, MA 02138. We’re the brick building with the green awning and you can find us downstairs on the left.

The age range of the kids involved is 0-18, but the vast majority are ages 4-11, with the second most populous group ages 0-4.

We’re looking for toys, puzzles, games, books, footballs, basketballs, whatever you can provide. It doesn’t have to be expensive, it’s just got to be something. If you can't bring your toy to the shop by Sunday, let me know and I'll arrange a pick-up.

Thank you for helping out!
