#whenwewereyoung getting the Toys 'R' Us Big Toy Book in the Sunday paper was one of the highlights of the holiday season.
*aka my life season. lol
I dont know about yall, but about a month before Christmas, I was like a 4'11 crackhead for that big ace, sparkly Toys 'R' Us Big Toy Book.
I would have my markers on deck, ready to circle all the craziness I wanted.
But now, most of us are grown as hell and we arent getting hella gifts from our parents like we used to.
And that's probably a good thing because hopefully, by now, we have realized that the holiday season is more about giving than receiving and thats exactly what the homies are doing....
My friend Brad and his guys have decided to pull a Spike Lee Joint and "Do the Right Thing" by throwing a dope event for a deserving family this Thanksgiving.
They have hooked up with Jesus Kids Outreach (a more grass roots organization than the typical Salvation Army route. ow.) to adopt a local St.Louis family, the Majors.
The Majors are dealing with an unfortunate situation.
Their house was flooded and they were forced to abandon their home.
And now Ms. Majors, a single mother to three young children, is having a tough time paying for both the mortgage of the flooded home and the rent at their current location.
But, thats where you come in!
On November 25, at Club Mercury in St. Louis, we are asking you to come out, support this family and of course, have a good time doing it.
Basically, we are accepting anything that will help including...
-New or slightly used clothing and shoes (sizes listed below)
*9-year-old girl- Size 5 in clothes, size 5 woman shoe.
*13-year-old girl- Size 16 in clothes, size 11 woman shoe (or 9.5 mens shoe)
*Infant boy- Size 12-18 in clothes.
I will have more information about this shin-dig in the next week, but in the mean time, please gather all you can for this deserving family because they could really use our support.
And if you would like to get in contact with the man with the plan aka Brad aka dude in charge of all of this, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you and we appreciate it!
