So every year during the holidays time I like to partake in a charity event I call "The Yoyodrive". The basic idea behind it is that I try to scrounge up some money in the hopes to go to a yoyo company and ask if they if they sell yoyos in bulk form. If they do and I agree with their price, I will usually buy around 50 new yoyos. With that process done, I take time and donate them to various charity related events in Central Wisconsin.

One of them is called "Hopes Door" which is based in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. Essentially, its a nonprofit organization that helps lower-income families to get clothing, food and toys. Specifically with toys they do it around the holidays. Last time I went through them, a good portion if not all of them went to a child for christmas!

So its like spreading the joy of yoyos while also giving a child a christmas present!

A lot of kids out there have to deal with no presents and usually a very hard time for the holidays because their parents be working double shifts of their jobs working minimum wages. Having to live paycheck to paycheck..its got to be hard on them and really makes me sad. So this is what little I can to make them smile, to add some kind of spark of christmas hope into them.

Anyways, thats what I have been up to. Still working on some art and things like that! 

You all have a Happy Holidays! If you reply to this, tell me your plans or what happened on your Christmas Eve/Day and or if you celebrate a different holiday in December you can tell me your events of that too.

Laterdays!
