Wow Amber, how many people do you know? you are going to do your best to get a donation out there? Instead of telling your friends to not spend a dime at the place, why not tell your friends to spend a dime for the kids? It seems the restaurant was trying to collect toys for the kids, how many other restaurants do you guys go to actually care? not a whole lot. guess we should all eat at home from now on.

Kudos to the business' in the comments here for taking up the cause. I will do my best to get a donation out there and make sure that everyone I know will never spend a dime at this restaurant. Thanks to the responsible business owners here!

Pyramid that is really kind and generous, we are fortunate to have storage units donated where we live. Am so sorry to hear about this unbelievable act of greed! Not sure how it works in your area but if this charity calls the Toys for Tots Foundation am sure they will get all the toys they need. Hope it works out, but I bet your community will overwhelm this charity with a wonderful response, people are good and want to give!
