    Hey Rev, I'm going to take it a step further to spread the word on Aqua Nerd. Posting an article to AquaNerd.com in a bit. Be on the lookout.

    Thank you @revhtree. For me, this is such a "feel-good" donation. It really adds to my Christmas, making me feel warm and fuzzy. Just wished it could have been more. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

    May I provide the link to the folks at nano-reef also? I spend much of my time there and I am pretty sure folks there will contribute as well.

    Just a quick follow up... would the emails for raffle ticket numbers come later or was it supposed to come the same day as donation?

    Cant wait to see more photos from this years donations!

    They usually come near the end of the collection period, a few days before the drawing

    BUMP this up....with suggestions for @revhtree.

    It would appear that this year's Toys for Kids post isn't getting the visibility it needs. I just so happened to hit upon the "Article" in the rotating feature article portion of the home page about 8 - 9 days after the original post. I would highly suggest you make the "Toys" post the only feature article so that it is the only Article on the home page...and always there for the next couple weeks.

    I also noted that a group of donors from last year haven't commented. I know we have a great group of folks here at R2R and have to believe that they simply aren't aware of this year's donation drive. Therefore, my second suggestion is to PM all of last year's donors (and maybe all past year's as well) to let them know it's happening NOW.

    I hope I didn't overstep my bounds by making the above suggestions.

    We've got a good group of folks at R2R and I know they'd donate if they knew about this post.

    I agree. I stumbled upon the thread but think it needs better visibility. Its such a great cause, would be a shame if people didnt support it only because they were not aware of it.

    Well bumping it up doesn't work very well. This site is so popular that within ten minutes or less it's pushed off the home page.

    Let's go folks.....we need donations!!! Very good cause.
