Got a few toys to drop off and will do so when I get to San Diego next weekend or the weekend after. Just to clarify, can they be dropped off at any of the Jackson Hewitt locations or just the one on Broadway?
Also, would you want used toys (as long as they are still in good condition)?

if every unique visitor to BN would give $5 to the paypal account there would be ALOT of smiling kids on Jan 4. it's easy to do and it will make a kid happy, not to mention you should feel pretty good about it....

i used the paypal method just because i think Fernando and Simone would know better than i what would put a smile on a kids face....

I do not feel that $5.00 per responding Nomad is generous enough.:no:
At least a $20.00 bill is in order!:bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce:

thanks for the info fdt. i was just calling them to confirm their hours.

WHY was this merged to this thread? more people would see it with its own title. now it is lost in the middle of this 3 page thread.
this is a FREE delivery, more toys may be donated without one having to deal with mailing or driving the toys down.

Fernando, my son should be dropping off 3 soccer balls and 3 dolls that have a backpack with a little puppy attached to each of the dolls. He will be dropping them off in Chula Vista. He got them today, as he called me while he was in the checkout line. I will keep after him if he did not take them by today. Later--------------------bajafun777

Thanks bajafun. If we take the number of toys dropped off and the ones bajafun's son is delivering, we will be short only a mere 86 toys. Come on Baja Nomads, we can do it!

Friday will be 1 month since we announced that the 3rd Annual Baja Nomad Dia de Reyes Toy Drive would be held on January 04, we have 121 children waiting on gifts for that day and I'm sure we will be able to come thru for them like in the past years. I understand that the current state of the economy is one of holding off on unnecesary purchases but I urgently implore that you send in your toy donations. Our bike donor has about 12 bikes for us, that leaves us with about 101 children in need of toys. Udo's donations had among clothing items 12 toys, leaving us needing 97 toys.
To this date 1 (one) person went Saturday to the drop off location to deliver toys. So as you can clearly see, we are still short here.
So, I urge you to help make this happen. The toy drive has your'e name on it.
There are less than 2 weeks left.

Where's the Nomad spirit of Santa???

C'mon friends - we certainly can't leave 90 children with rocks in their socks for Christmas.

Fernando and Simone and their children work very hard to create a bit of holiday happiness for these needy kids. One year little Sophia even donated her very own Christmas present - a brand new bike. That's no small donation for a little girl.

The spirit of Christmas lives in the act of giving. Perhaps each of us might give up just one personal Christmas gift.... tell our families that we'd rather donate that money towards a toy for a child who will otherwise get none.

Think about it, please. Paypal info is at the start of this post. It takes less than 5 minutes to make a donation. Fernando, Simone and the children will purchase and wrap a gift from you.

Happy Holidays to Everyone!

Nena
