Ok, CCL-ers...gather around and let me tell you a Christmas story:

In December 2008, a local children's play center had put up a tree asking for donations for Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.


There were no items under the tree.

This really got to me because my youngest son Jace, who has Down's Syndrome, was born at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.



I posted a picture of this tree in the CCL Forums and asked the CCL Membership for donations to purchase items to put underneath it.



...and the donations started rolling in. And after a couple weeks, the tree looked like this:



At YOUR REQUEST...this was made into an annual event. And thus, the CCL MARATHON TOY DRIVE was born.



And every year it gets a little better...

...and every year we get more and more donations...






And now, we're ready to make this year the BEST. YEAR. EVER.



THE 2013 CCL MARATHON TOY DRIVE kicks off today, right this very instant NOVEMBER 18th and runs through DECEMBER 13th 2013! Money donated will be to purchase items found on Vanderbilt Children's Hospital Wish List. This year, our goal is $1500...which is the biggest ever. The CCL MEMBERSHIP has requested over the years for us to be aggressive on this effort, so I'm making it a personal goal to MEET and EXCEED this goal...but I can't do it without your help. Donate $10 or donate $100. It will ALL go towards purchasing this stuff.

Donations can be made via PAYPAL to: CCL4KIDS@MIDTENMEDIA.COM. 100% of your donation will be used to purchase items on the Wish List. You can also mail a donation directly to our offices:

Comic Collector Live Marathon Toy Drive
c/o Steve Boyd
131 Sanders Ferry Rd
Suite 201
Hendersonville, TN
37075


Please make checks payable to Comic Collector Live.

Donations from the Wish List may also be mailed, however, please stick with the list. PLEASE DO NOT SEND COMIC BOOKS. While we would love to get more comics in the hands of kids, the hospital has very specific requests due to the health and well-being of the children there.

AGAIN. THE DEADLINE TO DONATE IS DECEMBER 13th, 2013. I will be personally delivering the goods we purchase directly to VANDERBILT CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL on December 16th at 10:15 AM.

Please donate. Please spread the word. It's going to take all of us working together to make this goal a reality.

God bless you guys, and let's get this thing rolling.

Ok guys - thought I'd give you an update on the fundraiser...which is pretty cool.

I was asked by some donors to EXTEND the deadline until SATURDAY at 6pm. There were some people that just weren't able to get the donation in time OR wanted to run by the CCL store and personally drop it off. So how are we doing so far?

You'll be pretty pleased to know that we are at around 80% of our $1500 GOAL at this point. It's been a LONG road to $1500 but I'm bound and determined to make this happen this year. Some of you have went above and beyond to make this year the best ever for our fundraiser. I'm super appreciative of that and it shows how supportive the CCL community is to what we're about. It's doing some good with an audience that wants to do some good.

If you haven't given to the fundraiser, you still have time. The cutoff is 6PM tonight. Currently I'm at the Comic Collector Live store in Hendersonville minding the shop and then tonight it's the fun and exhausting part of the fundraiser, which is getting the stuff.

If you want to donate, please send your donation via PAYPAL to: CCL4KIDS@MIDTENMEDIA.COM. Help make a difference and show that Comic Collector Live's community is one of the best and caring around.

Thanks guys!
